Rourkela: Senior BJD leader Rohit Tanty today resigned from the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) reportedly over ticket distribution.
Tanty, who was party’s Biramitrapur Assembly constituency Youth wing president, was a ticket aspirant from Raghunathpalli Assembly segment. However, the party has named the sitting MLA Subrat Tarai as its official candidate from Raghunathpalli.
The quitting of Tanty ahead of the elections may affect the party. However, Tanty’s future course of political action is yet to be ascertained.
