Jharsuguda: After Congress working president and Jharsuguda MLA Naba Das hinted at joining the BJD ahead of 2019 election, senior BJD leader and former Jharsuguda MLA Kishore Mohanty today said that there will be no problems if Das joins the party.
Das is a veteran Congress leader and has twice defeated BJD stalwart Mohanty by comfortable margins in the Jharsuguda constituency.
“There will be no problem if Naba Das joins BJD. Whatever decision party supremo takes, will be final,” said the former Assembly Speaker.
On Sunday, Das created a ripple in political circle by hinting at joining the BJD ahead of 2019 election.
On the sidelines of a public meeting in Samasingha in Jharsuguda, he said that people of Jharsuguda want him to contest from BJD. “I don’t want to leave Congress. But, my supporters want me to fight the 2019 elections on BJD ticket and I will do what my people want,” he said.
