Tytler warns against indiscipline in Congress
Bhubaneswar: Any act of indiscipline by party workers and leaders will not be tolerated as unity and collective efforts are needed to dislodge BJD government in 2014 elections in Odisha, AICC Odisha-in-Charge Jagdish Tytler said on Tuesday.
"Indiscipline will not be tolerated in the party at all. Anybody indulging in acts of indiscipline will face action," Tytler told reporters here.
Stating that none would be neglected or discriminated in the party in the state where polls are due next year, Tytler said indiscipline and factionalism by anybody, however big leader he might be, would be suicidal as unity and collective action was of utmost importance.
Congress high-command had given the newly appointed OPCC President Jaydev Jena full power and authority to curb indiscipline in the party, he said.
Stating that Jena had played a major role in curbing indiscipline in Assam when he was AICC secretary in-charge of the north-eastern state, he said Congress President had sent him a letter of appreciation for this.
Dismissing allegations that Congress played caste card in appointing dalit leader Jena as OPCC president, Tytler said, "It is not correct. I don't believe this. It was the wisdom of the high-command to do what is best in the present situation."
On the issue of Vedanta's bauxite mine project in Niyamgiri hills in Kalahandi district, he said everything should be done as per the Supreme Court directive.
Jena said with the cooperation of all sections and collective efforts, Congress would capture power in 2014 polls dislodging BJD.
