Mahakalpara block chairperson and her supporters today alleged MP Panda of not maintaining any contact with party leaders.

“We believe that the MP is no more within the ideals and ethics of the party. He is not in touch with the party workers of the block so we expressed our resentment against the MP before the party president Naveen Patnaik and have urged him to take action,” said a supporter of  Mahakalpara block chairperson.

Earlier on Sunday, Nischintakoili Panchayat Samiti chairperson had also levelled similar charges against the MP.
