Bhubaneswar: Putting all speculation to rest, Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) Working President and former parliamentarian Pradeep Majhi resigned from the party’s primary membership on Thursday.

The resignation letter has been sent to the party’s interim president Sonia Gandhi.

The former MP said in his letter that he wanted to serve people while being in Congress, but the grand old party lacks enthusiasm.

“I shall however perform my duties as per your ideology and serve the people with utmost satisfaction,” he said in the letter.

Majhi is most likely to join BJD soon. He is yet to talk to the media and his phone is switched off.

 

Majhi, who represented Nabarangpur Lok Sabha seat from 2009 to 2014, was a prominent tribal leader as well as a youth leader of Congress in Odisha. Though he lost the 2014 and 2019 parliamentary polls from Nabarangpur to Balabhadra Majhi (BJD) and Ramesh Majhi (2019), he is known to have considerable support in Nabarangpur and Malkangiri districts.

This is the second jolt to Congress this month.

On October 14, former Dhenkanal MLA Nabin Nanda had resigned from the hand party. He had joined Congress before the 2019 general elections after being expelled from the ruling BJD.
