Former IPS Prakash Mishra Joins BJP, To Contest from Cuttack

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-03-24

Former DGP Prakash Mishra joins BJP at the BJP headquarters today and is going to contest from Cuttack.


The BJP, which has set its focus on Odisha and West Bengal as part of its ‘Mission East’ project, sees Prakash Mishra as credible face to take on ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD). As an officer he has clean image and enjoy the reputation of being a very honest and upright person. He is also regarded as an able administrator in his area of professional expertise.  


Prakash Mishra was a victim of politics and had to face a lot of hassles due to vindictiveness of State Govt. Even, the Orissa High Court while quashing the “fake” vigilance probe against him had castigated the Odisha Government, saying “it’s not uncommon that honest and upright officers are victimized by political establishments”. Prakash Mishra was unceremoniously sacked as the DGP for failing to toe the government line; a vigilance case was slapped against him to block him from becoming the CBI Director. He was later appointed as the CRPF DG and retired in 2016.

Another officer Aparajita Sarangi is also going to contest from Bhubaneswar on BJP ticket.
