Bhubaneswar: Days after BJD’s Kendrapara leader Debasis Mallik lambasted MP Baijayant Panda, Kendrapada BJD Minority Cell former president Md Salim Khan today countered Mallik that he had convened the press meet against Baijayant Panda at the behest of a former minister and an administrator.
Salim alleged that Debasis had also invited him to join the anti-Baijayant group. Even Debasis had also tried to drag him to the press meet he had called.
Salim has appealed to the Chief Minister and party supremo Naveen Patnaik to keep the party away from such conspiracy.
Salim has also issued an audio tape featuring the conversation between him and Debasis. In the conversation, Debasis had tried to lure Salim to act against Baijayant.
The audio tape reportedly exposed the conspiracy against the lok sabha MP. In the conversation, Debasis had told Salim that he met Bobby Bhai who had a talk with someone ‘P’. ‘P’ had suggested him to play aggressively against Panda. Those who play more aggressively will be rewarded.
In the audio conversation, Debasis had reportedly told Salim that Bobby Bhai has become more close to ‘P’ and is looking after everything.
