MLA Prasanta Jagadev joins BJP

Friday, 01 March 2024 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

Ahead of elections 2024, Chilika MLA Prasanta Kumar Jagadev joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) here on Thursday.


The expelled BJD leader was officially inducted into the BJP in the presence of Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi, BJP State election co-in-charge Lata Usendi and other senior leaders at the party’s State headquarters.


 “I am delighted and proud to have joined the BJP family. I will work as a soldier of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” Jagadev said after joining the BJP.


The BJD had suspended Jagadev from the party in September 2021 for “anti-party” activities, including an alleged assault on a BJP leader in his constituency.


He was expelled from the party after he was booked in a ‘mowing down’ case in March 2022. He was condemned for an alleged act after his SUV ploughed through a crowd injuring at least 22 people including 10 police personnel and two journalists at Banpur in Khordha district on March 12, 2022.
