Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik says, “Dama Babu always makes irresponsible statements and his allegations are ridiculous”. CM Naveen Patnaik said this in Bhubaneswar after his returns to Bhubaneswar from New Delhi.
It should be noted that BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik had expelled senior BJD leader Dama Rout from the party for allegedly indulging in anti-party activities. CM Patnaik expelled him during his three-day visit to New Delhi.
Speaking on the speculation that Dama along with some other ousted BJD leaders might form a new political party in the state ahead of the 2019 general and assembly election, Patnaik said, “It was their business. It will not have any impact on Odisha politics.”
