Bhubaneswar: Salipur MLA Prakash Behera today afternoon visited New Delhi. He is likely to join BJP tomorrow.
On Saturday morning he resigned from the primary membership of Congress and sent his resignation letter to Congress president Rahul Gandhi. Behera said he was being neglected by the party leadership.
Earlier, he had praised BJD’s performance and said the ruling party is in a safe position and was doing well. However, the MLA is likely to join BJP after BJD leader and Minister Pratap Jena recently in a BJD workers’ samavesh cleared the air by stating that Prashant Behera would be party’s candidate from Salipur Assembly constituency and urged voters to vote for him.
