Bhubaneswar: In a sharp reaction to resignation of two party leaders, the BJP said while Rourkela MLA Dilip Ray quit the party after failing to get relief from CBI pertaining to coal scam case, Bijay Mohapatra resigned because of his DNA that he creates groupism and disturbances wherever he goes.
“Ray was trying to get relief from the coal scam case filed by earlier UPA government. However, he did not get any support from the party as the Prime Minister’s policy, ‘Na khaunga, na khane dunga’ is being implemented in true spirit. His pleas of delay in construction of 2nd Brahmani bridge and converting IGH to a super specialty hospital behind his resignation are false, said BJP State vice-president Samir Mohanty at a Press meet here.
Mohanty said the BJP has never neglected Mohapatra. He did not attend party executive meetings, still his membership was intact. However, he alleged that Mohapatra quit the party due to his DNA complication.
