Krushna Chandra Sagaria resigns from Odisha Assembly formally


Bhubaneswar: Congress MLA from Koraput, Krushna Chandra Sagaria on Tuesday formally resigned from the membership of Odisha Legislative Assembly.

He met Speaker Pradeep Amat and submitted his resignation letter.

Sagaria had earlier announced about his resignation on October 30. However, he had not submitted his resignation letter on that day due to the absence of the Speaker.

He cited no reason of quitting from the legislator post in the resignation letter.

Worth mentioning, he had announced to resign from the membership of Odisha Legislative Assembly citing that he has no moral rights of holding the position after the Kunduli ‘gangrape’ and suicide incident.
