Will form new party to drive out corrupt BJD government: Dama Rout
Bhubaneswar: Senior leader Damodar Rout on Wednesday said that the loyalists of former chief minister late Biju Patnaik will soon come up together to form a new party based on the principles and ideologies of the legendary CM to oust the corrupt BJD government in Odisha.
Plans are underway to launch a new regional party soon to eradicate corruption and ill-governance in the State. The proposed new party will however not form alliance with any political party, Rout said.
“We will hold a discussion on the same on November 9-10 and inform about the decision related to the formation of the party on November 11-12. In the meeting, I will propose to name the party after Biju Babu,” said Rout.
Asked who is trying to create the hindrance, Rout said, “Who does it mean by saying government? Of course, it is Pandian… Government means Pandian.”
Speaking to the media on Rout’s hint at formation of a new party, BJD spokesperson Sasmit Patra said that those who are making such big claims must first put it into work (form a new party) and then only the BJD will speak on it. “There’s no point in telling anything about it now,” Patra added.
