Bhubaneswar: Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) spokesperson Sulochana Das resigned from the party on Mondy.
She informed about her resignation through social media that “I have resigned from Congress party”.
Earlier in the day, she met BJD supremo and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik fuelling speculation of joining the BJD soon.
In a Facebook post she wote,” I have resigned from Congress party. With deep anguish, I have taken this decision to resign from the Congress. During the last four years the party gave me the scope to work as a spokesperson and general secretary for which I am thankful to the party. But, I was shattered everyday when I saw serious indiscipline and lack of coordination between the PCC and the Congress Legislature Party and it became very difficult for me to work in the party”.
“Since the party is divided into various groups based on individual leaders, I could not fit into any of these groups. When communal forces were raising their head in Odisha because of the weaknesses of the Congress party, I felt ashamed to continue in the Congress”, she added.
