Bhubaneswar: A day after BJP vice-president of Odisha unit Rajkishore Das resigned from the primary membership of the party, senior leader and vice-president Sameer Mohanty today reacted that Das has never been neglected in the party and he was given prestigious positions on several occasions.
Some party workers had recently levelled allegations against him that he was in touch with BJD, which has been proved now, Mohanty added.
Mohanty further maintained that ticket on Morada Assembly seat has not yet been finalised. How he can guess that he would be denied ticket, Mohanty asked
He was an aspirant for Morada Assembly segment. But, Morada seat was not in the second phase list which was announced two days back.
Rajkishore, who had played a major role in strengthening BJP in Mayurbhanj district, lambasted Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan. To gain his own political interest, Dharmendra sacrificed the senior and veteran leaders of the party, he alleged.
