Election Pond in Odisha Gets Murkier Day After Day: One More Congress MLA Resigned from Party

Author : Prasant Kumar | Posted on: 2019-03-16

Ending the speculation and uncertainty of the last few days, finally sitting Congress MLA Sri Prakash Behera today resigned from the primary membership of the party. He has sent his resignation letter to the party high command Sri Rahul Gandhi citing discrimination and negligence that the party has shown to him in the last few months. Though he has not revealed as to which party he is joining after leaving Congress and is still keeping his card close to his chest, speculation is rife in his constituency that he may opt for BJD.

 

It must be mentioned here that Mr. Behera has been active in the Congress Party since last 20 years. In 2014 Odisha State Assembly election, he, for the first time won from Salipur (Cuttack) assembly constituency from Congress ticket. Along with Mr. Behera, till now three Congress MLAs have already resigned from the party in the last one month; the other two being Mr. Naba Das, MLA form Jharsuguda and Mr. Jogesh Singh, MLA from Sundargarh.

 

As the election water is getting muddier day by day, every political leader is weighing his/her options vis-à-vis the electoral arithmetic of win and loss and therefore, trying to secure his/her future by switching parties in order to enhance their electoral prospects. This unpredictable behaviour of the leaders is making their followers jittery and leaving them much embarrassed.
