Morada MLA Praveen Chandra Bhanj Deo  quits BJD

Bhubaneswar: In yet another jolt to ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) ahead of the Lok Sabha and assembly elections in Odisha, sitting MLA from Morada constituency, Praveen Chandra Bhanj Deo resigned from the party on Monday.

Deo sent his resignation letter to party president and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik little while ago, party insiders said.

Deo’s resignation comes as a fresh setback for the regional party a day after five-time MLA Raghunath Mohanty quit the party and joined BJP.

Earlier, Nabarangpur MP Balabhadra Majhi, Kandhamal MP Pratyusha Rajeswari Singh and Kalahandi MP Arka Keshari Deo resigned from BJD later ahead of the polls.
