Bargarh BJP district president Narayan Sahu today resigned from the party

Bhubaneswar:21/11/17; In a setback to the BJP that is making preparations for the upcoming Bijepur bypolls, the party’s Bargarh district president Narayan Sahu today resigned from the party and announced his decision to join the ruling BJD on December 3.

The state BJP unit, however, maintained that the district president was expelled for his anti-BJP activities and named Arupananda Sahu as his replacement.

Sahu met Biju Janata Dal (BJD) president and chief minister Naveen Patnaik at his residence early in the day, before announcing the decision.

“The BJP is a party that lacks ideology. My selfless dedication towards the party from 1997 to 2017 was of no value. So, I decided to join the BJD,” he told reporters.

Sahu said he had been a part of the BJD earlier and rejoining the party was more like a ‘homecoming’ for him.

“Even Biju Babu had offered me ticket when I was with the Janata Party (BJD). I believe in selfless work and service to people. Joining the party is more like a homecoming for me,” Sahu said.

Meanwhile, BJP state president Basant Panda in a statement said Sahu has been expelled from the party for his anti-party activities and his ouster will have no impact on the bypolls.
