All seems to be not well with Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s BJD. There are signs of visible dissent in the party  . This attribute has come to the fore after ‘Biju Janta Dal (BJD) MP Baijayant Jay Panda  resigned from his party .

In a letter addressed to party chief and Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik, Panda has written that it is with “deep anguish, hurt and sorrow” that he has decided to formally part his ways from the political party which was formed by Patnaik in 1997.

According to media reports, Panda did not see eye to eye with Patnaik of late and was suspended from the party in January 2018 for anti-party activities.

Citing one of the recent instances of feeling party’s hostility, Panda has mentioned that he was “heartbroken” to learn that several of his party members were “restrained” from attending his father’s last rites, who had passed away earlier in May.

He further writes that “the BJD does not want me anymore, and in fact wants me out, is now irrefutably clear” and therefore he has taken this decision to step down in the interest of his self-respect.
