Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan accepted BJD MP Baijayant Jay Panda’s resignation

Newdelhi:19/7/18; A day before the Parliament is set to take up the Opposition sponsored no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government, Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan accepted BJD MP Baijayant Jay Panda’s resignation.

Panda, who represented the Kendrapara constituency, had resigned on June 12. He met Mahajan yesterday and requested her to accept his resignation.

Later he tweeted about his meeting with the Speaker.

In January this year, the lawmaker was suspended from the Biju Janata Dal for alleged anti-party activities.

It may be recalled here that the high-profile Biju Janata Dal MP had resigned from the party on May 28, saying that he has decided to “quit the politics” into which the ruling Odisha party has descended. Panda had incidentally been suspended from the party for alleged anti-party activities earlier on January 25.
