Bhubaneswar: Ex- MLA Bijepur Ashok Panigrahi to join BJP on Oct 2. PM Narendra Modi inspired me to join BJP, says ex-MLA Bijepur Ashok Panigrahi.
Panigrahi had alleged that Kalpataru Das had asked him to contest elections in 2014 as an Independent candidate against Prasanna Acharya who eventually lost the election.
However, Naveen Patnaik categorically denied any direction to Ashok Panigrahi for defeating the party candidate in the 2014 elections. Before leaving for New Delhi on Tuesday on a six-day visit, Patnaik termed the allegations of Panigrahi as “totally untrue”.
