Bhubaneswar:3/2/19: Former Congress leader and Koraput MLA Krushna Chandra Sagaria joined the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) at a function organised at Lower PMG in Bhubaneswar today.
Sagaria, who was expelled from Congress, joined the BSP in the presence of senior party leaders.
It may be mentioned here that the Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) on January 19 expelled Sagaria from the primary membership of the party for his alleged anti-party activities.
The move came after the recommendation of the All India Congress committee for his adverse remarks on the Leader of Opposition (LoP) Narasingha Mishra.
On November 6, 2018, Sagaria also resigned as the member of the Odisha Assembly citing that he left the post for his failure to provide justice to the Kunduli minor gang-rape victim.
