Salepur MLA Prakash Behera resigned from the primary membership of Congress

Cuttack:16/3/19: Salepur MLA Prakash Behera today resigned from the primary membership of Congress. He has sent his resignation to Congress President Rahul Gandhi.

In his letter to the All India Congress Committee (AICC) president, Behera has alleged negligence by the party towards him. He also cited that he has been humiliated ‘time and again’ by the State party leadership.


“My grievance was not considered duly by the PCC. I have worked in Congress for the last 20 years but the party has neglected me of late,” Behera stated in the letter.

Behera is most likely to join the BJP soon.

Earlier, there were speculations that Behera might join the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD). However, the party leader and Minister Pratap Jena recently made it clear that the party would field Prashant Behera from Salepur.
