Ex-Congress leader Krushna Sagaria to join BSP tomorrow
Bhubaneswar: Former Congress leader and Koraput MLA Krushna Chandra Sagaria will join the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) at a function in Bhubaneswar on Sunday.
Sagaria, who was expelled from Congress, will join the BSP in the presence of the party’s state in-charge Dharamveer Singh. He had earlier announced that he would join the BSP on January 25.
Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee had expelled Sagaria from the primary membership of the party on disciplinary grounds following the recommendation of the All India Congress committee for his adverse remarks on the leader of the opposition Narasingha Mishra.
Sagaria had resigned as the member of the Odisha Assembly on November 6, 2018, and cited that he quitted the post for his failure to provide justice to the Kunduli minor gang-rape victim.
