BJD Hinjili leader KC Mohapatra resigns

Berhampur: Ruling BJD`s Hinjili town unit president has resigned from the party`s primary membership ahead of the panchayat polls in the state.

Hinjili is in Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik`s constituency in Ganjam district and the party leader Krushna Chandra Mahapatra, a follower of late Biju Patnaik, resigned alleging inaction by the party chief in checking corruption and goondaism in the constituency.

I have dispatched my resignation letter to the chief minister, who is also the president of the party and to BJD district unit chief Subash Moharana, he said.

Moharana, however, hoped the matter would be sorted out amicably. He is one of the senior members of the party and the matter will be solved through discussion.

There is no dissident in the party in the district, particularly in Hinjili constituency,Moharana said.
