Debashis Hopes CM To Act Against Dama


Bhubaneswar: Jan 13; Cuttack Barabati BJD MLA Debashis Samantaray hopes that his party supremo and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik will take action against Minister Damodar Rout for Rout's persistent public denouncement of Samantaray at a personal level.

The Chief Minister had earlier dropped Rout from the Ministry twice for his reckless utterances and he (the CM) "might" take action against him this time too, said Samantaray, who is known to close the CM, on Tuesday.

Rout has been speaking against Samantaray on the issue of the recent forced resignation of Cuttack Mayor Anita Behera of the BJD as her name figured in the NFSA ration card list at the alleged instance of Samantaray.

Samantaray has been pointing out that Rout had not joined the BJD since its inception and had dubbed the party as that of a Genda (snail) in reference to the party's symbol of conch, which has a faint similarity with snail.
