Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Congress continues to weaken gradually as the leaders and workers continue to quit party in every other day. Now, veteran Ollywood actor Bijay Mohanty who had unsuccessfully contested 2014 election from Bhubaneswar Lok Sabha constituency has resigned recently.
He said that he has tendered his resignation to Odisha Pradesh Congress president Prasad Harichandan on March 31 citing that he was not actively involved in politics after the 2014 general elections.
“I don’t want to be tagged as a member of the party anymore since I was not actively involved in any programmes post elections,” Mohanty said.

The actor had joined the party at the Congress Bhawan in Bhubaneswar in February 2014 and had contested from Bhubaneswar parliamentary constituency on party ticket.
