Former MP Dhaneswar Majhi quits BJD, joins BJP

Bhubaneswar: Ahead of dual elections in Odisha, former MP and veteran leader from Kalahandi district Dhaneswar Majhi quit BJD and joined BJP on Friday.

Majhi, who was a Rajya Sabha member and was elected for five times from Kesinga and Narla Assembly constituencies in the district, was welcomed to BJP at a function in party office in Bhubaneswar.

Former state BJP president Samir Mohanty, vice-president Biranchi Narayan Tripathy, secretary Saroj Kar and former minister Surama Padhi were present at the function.
