Ex-Kakatpur MLA Rabi Mallick Resigns From BJD

Bhubaneswar: Senior BJD leader and former Kakatpur MLA Rabi Mallick resigned from the primary membership of the party on Friday. He has also resigned as member, District Planning Board.


In his letter to party president and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, Mallick expressed displeasure over the party’s gross apathy towards him.

Mallick was elected from Kakatpur on a BJD ticket in the 2009 Assembly elections. The party did not consider his name for the 2014 elections and fielded Surendra Sethi in his place.

Mallick was hopeful of getting the party ticket this time. But the party leadership reposed faith in Surendra Sethi again.
