Bhubaneswar: A day after resigning from Congress, senior leader Pranay Sahu today joined Biju Janata Dal (BJD) in presence of chief minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik at his residence here today.
Earlier, he said that BJD had offered him to join the party two weeks back.
He quit the Congress citing negligence in the party. Sahu, who had unsuccessfully contested the by-poll for Bijepur Assembly constituency last year, said that he had requested the party leadership to review the miserable performance in the by-poll, but the party had paid no heed in this regard.
Sahu alleged that besides not considering his demand for a review of the poll debacle, he was also not considered for any post during the reconstitution of OPCC this year.
