'Disgruntled' BJD leaders

The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) is reportedly in turmoil with revolts by leaders, who were denied party tickets. Delaying the announcement of tickets in some seats has made the matter worse. 

As per reports, supporters of the sitting MLA of Nimapara, Samir Ranjan Dash fumed after their leader was denied a ticket. They warned of mass resignation if the party doesn’t reconsider Dash for a ticket. The BJD has fielded Dillip Nayak in the Nimapara Assembly seat this time.
