Baijayant resigns from Lok Sabha
Kendrapada MP Baijayant Panda, who had resigned from the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) in May, tendered his resignation from the Lok Sabha on Tuesday and sent a letter in this regard to Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.
“In letter to Naveen Patnaik on my intent to dissociate from BJD, I’d said on completion of my father’s kriyas I’d resign from the Lok Sabha. The day after they ended, I sought to meet the Speaker as per custom. It wasn’t possible and I understand since she has gone abroad, so I’ve had it delivered,” Panda said in a Tweet on Tuesday.
While quitting the BJD on May 28, Panda in a letter to party supremo and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had said that he would convey his decision formally to the Speaker of the Lok Sabha to accept his resignation from the House upon completion of rites of his deceased father Bansidhar Panda. Notably, Panda was suspended from the BJD by Patnaik on January 24 for anti-party activities.
