Bhubaneswar: Barely hours after the expulsion of Gopalpur MLA Pradeep Kumar Panigrahi, president of BJD Ganjam district president Ramesh Chandra Chyau Patnaik claimed that the former is closely associated with the suspended IFS officer Abhay Kant Pathak and his son.

Stating that there have been scores of allegations against Panigrahi by the people of his constituency, he said as the Chief Minister is a crusader against corruption, he sacked him from the party. “I welcome the timely step taken by the party supremo,” he added.
