Pandian should resign and join ‘legally’ in politics: Baijayant

Bhubaneswar: Suspended BJD MP Baijayant Panda on Thursday attacked Chief Minister’s private secretary V. Karthikeyan Pandian by saying that he should resign from service and join politics.

The fresh attack of Panda came after some BJD leaders including former Lok Sabha MP Hema Gamang alleged that Pandian is calling the shorts in ruling BJD.

“With so many insiders making serious allegations against Pandian, it is high time for an investigation. It would be better for him to resign from the IAS so that he can legally be involved in politics, something he is now doing illegally, in gross violation of service rules,” tweeted Panda.

Notably, Baijayant Panda has been suspended from BJD for anti-party activities.
