Gamang attends BJP ST Morcha NEC Meeting

Bhubaneswar, June 18: Former Odisha Chief Minister Giridhar Gamang, who recently joined the BJP, attended the two-day national executive meeting of ST Morcha of BJP yesterday here.

This is the first meeting after the induction in the saffron party.

Gamang is yet to announce formally about his joining in BJP. However, his presence in the meeting proved that there will be no looking back. He will never return to the Congress, which is struggling in both Odisha and the country.
