Odisha BJP Leaders talk Tough against Suspended Sahu


Bhubaneswar, Oct 24: Odisha BJP leaders reacted strongly to the statement by suspended leader Ashok Sahu, who had said that the party is run by some tainted leaders alleging state president KV Singhdeo.

Senior BJP leader Samir Dey said that the charges against him by Sahu was baseless. He said he had complete faith in the party leadership and the action taken by it against Sahu for his anti-party activities while demanding his expulsion from the party. "The party knows what I am and whatever Sahu says after his suspension makes no sense," said Dey.

Former minister and senior BJP leader Manmohan Samal said, "Sahu was twice nominated as party candidate to contest elections. He should have declined to contest if he believed the state leadership is corrupt and there is no transparency in the party. Making allegations after being suspended from the party make no sense."

Reacting to Sahu, Jaynarayan Mishra, another former minister in the BJD-BJP coalition government, told the media that there were no allegations of corruption against him and there was nothing new in a suspended man making allegations others in the party.
