In a latest development, senior leader and Odisha BJP vice-president Lekhashree Samantsinghar on Sunday resigned from the primary membership of the party.

In her resignation letter, Samantsinghar wrote that she had given her sweat and blood to the party in the last 10 years. Despite hardwork and sincerity, she could not earn the trust of the leadership.

Soon after announcing her resignation from BJP in the morning, Samansinghar joined the ruling BJD at a function held at Bhubaneswar before noon today.

It is pertinent to mention here that BJP was elevated to the post of vice-president from general secretary after appointment of Manmohan Samal as party's Odisha president.

It is said that Samantsinghar was unhappy and switched camp before the 2024 elections.
