Bhubaneswar: Ghashipur MLA and School and Mass Education Minister Badrinarayan Patra on Thursday termed Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee president Niranjan Patnaik as a “Siberian bird”. Notably, Patnaik is a native of Keonjhar district.
According to reports, Patra made this comment in response to a question of reports who wanted to know if the Congress is rising in the State under the leadership of Patnaik and if revocation of Kusha Apat’s suspension would benefit Keonjhar BJD.
“People of Odisha have thrown away the Congress into the Bay of Bengal. Niranjan Babu is a Siberan bird, who will fly back after a short season,” Patra said, adding that people of Keonjhar have welcomed the BJD supremo’s decision of revoking suspension on Kusha Apat.
