Infighting in Congress take new mode

Bhubaneswar:9/7/17 The infighting between the Congress MLAs demanding PCC president Prasad Harichandan’s ouster and the latter’s father-in-law Suresh Routray, a senior party leader, is getting uglier by the day.

On Saturday, Talsara MLA Prafulla Majhi and Sundargarh MLA Jogesh Singh lashed out at Routray for his remarks against the MLAs. Majhi said, “Who is Sura Routray? Is he a party vice-president, a general secretary or a spokesperson? Does he realize that making such irresponsible statements deteriorate the image of the party?”

Majhi said, “The intraparty feud has come down to a personal level and Routray should put an end to it. The PCC president is unable to shoulder the responsibilities.”

He further said the demand for a change of guard in the PCC has been raised in the past and would continue to be made in coming days.

Further adding fuel to the fire, Routray on Saturday said, “If anyone tries to touch the PCC president, the person will be kidnapped from his house even if he is fast asleep. We will severely thrash up the person irrespective of the party he belongs to.”
