Odisha BJP sacks Kendrapara unit chief

Bhubaneswar: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Odisha unit today relieved party’s Kendrapara district president Sukant Kumar Dwivedi of his responsibilities.

“BJP’s Kendrapara district president Sukant Kumar Dwivedi has been relieved of his responsibilities,” informed BJP state unit vice president Samir Mohanty to reporters here today.

Mohanty said Dwivedi was removed from his post on orders by party’s state unit president Basant Panda.

“Since Dwivedi failed to carry out his responsibilities properly, the state unit president took this decision,” Mohanty explained.

Notably, Dwivedi had boycotted the ‘Mishran Parva’ of the party held at Kendrapara last Sunday in protest as party’s senior leader Bijoy Mohapatra was not invited to the event as we reported here.
