Jajpur: Three-time MLA from Jajpur Pranab Prakash Das has been appointed as the Organisational Secretary of Biju Jananta Dal (BJD). Party Supremo and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik announced this at BJD headquarters here today.
With this, Das will now be in charge of all organisational affairs of the ruling party. The legislator had played a vital role for the party in 2014 and 2019 elections in the state. He was also given the charge of Bijepur and Patkura by-polls by the party.
In November last year, the leader was appointed as BJD’s General Secretary (Organisation), a position that the ruling party did not have before.
