Ex-MP Archana Nayak quits BJP

Bhubaneswar: Former MP Archana Nayak quit BJP on Monday. She has sent her resignation letter to BJP president KV Singhdeo.

"The organisational structure is not strong and BJP is not functioning as a political party. Above all, the party is not utilising the experience of senior leaders," said Nayak.

She had won the Kendrapara seat during 14th Lok Sabha election as BJD candidate defeating Srikant Jena of Congress. Meanwhile, citing being isolated she had resigned from BJD in 2009 and joined BJP subsequently.
