Controversy over MP article

Bhubaneswar:25/4/17: Close on the heels of Biju Janata Dal (BJD) MP Baijayant Panda’s articlein odia daily Samaj  on party affairs that left the ruling party red-faced and invited Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s discomfort, another MP of the ruling party, Bhartruhari Mahtab , on Tuesday did the same thing – wrote an article, in odia tabloid Nirvaya  , which did not go down well with his party colleagues.

BJD, however, termed Mahtab’s newspaper article is his personal statement and it has nothing do with party.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said an MP sometimes speaks above the party lines and BJD is now living with fear after seeing the massive support to PM Modi during the National Executive Meet.
