Bhubaneswar: Former Union Minister Srikanta Jena and former Koraput MLA Krishna Chandra Sagaria, who were expelled from the Congress recently, will attend Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor Arvind Kejriwal’s rally on January 31 in Bhubaneswar.
Jena informed about his and Sagaria’s participation at the Kejriwal’s meeting via social media.
The event is being organised by Samajika Naya Abhijan. Notably, Jena and Sagaria were expelled from the party for their continuous anti-party comments.
Following his expulsion, Jena blasted Congress president Rahul Gandhi for protecting corrupt persons.
Jena also claimed that the Congress was colluding with the Biju Janata Dal to encourage the rule of Patnaiks – of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and state Congress president Niranjan Patnaik. Jena was strongly opposed to Niranjan being appointed as state Congress chief.
