Lot of BJP workers are angry over denial of party tickets to them which created chaos among the workers as they continue to gherao the state party office and other regional party offices state-wide. BJP workers got angrier when BJP actor turned politician Pinky Pradhan was given the party ticket to contest from Digapahadi as they considered her less deserving.


Recently in Bhubaneswar the BJP party office headquarters main gate was locked for two days. The workers do not seem to be able to digest this reality and has been attempting to disrupt the functioning of the party office. This has been happening all over India where some potential candidates were not given seats for the Lok Sabha and the Assembly election.


Protests were in the beginning held by supporters of Amiya Dash who has been denied a BJP ticket from Ekamra-Bhubaneswar Assembly seat. Though the supporters of Dash withdrew their agitation on Friday night, they resumed the protest before the state BJP office on Saturday. They were later joined by dissident BJP leaders from Aul, Rajnagar, Digapandi and some other places. There are also news from several interior areas that the effigy of Union Minister Dhermendra Pradhan is being burnt at many local BJP offices since he is being considered as the main person behind the ticket distribution in Odisha.

Even BJP’s senior leader and party’s state Vice President Rajkishore das resigned from the primary membership of the party after being denied ticket from the Morada Assembly seat.


Some of the candidates are planning to leave the party and form a new coalition or even join the opposition parties like BJD or Congress. The opposition leaders are also trying their best to lure the BJP candidates who were denied ticket for the 2019 elections.
