Bhubaneswar: The tweet-column-tweet controversy of BJD leaders doesn’t seem to end. Another latest tweet by MP Baijayant Panda has added fuel to fire. In his latest tweet, Panda has asked party supremo Naveen Patnaik to introspect and resort the challenges within the party.
Vested interests trying to distort, but I want NP to recognise current challenges, take urgent steps & rediscover BJD’s original strengths ?

The controversy began when MP Tathagata Satpathy had tweeted hinting at party split and BJP strengthening its base in Odisha. Ever since, the series of tweets, comments and speculation has only intensified. On Tuesday, Panda’s column in a regional daily had raised many eyebrows inside the party.
While in the Twitter world they were seen throwing sarcastic remarks at each other, Panda and Satpathy were seen posing for a selfie in the Parliament on Tuesday.
