Bargarh: As informed earlier after tendering resignation from BJP, former Bargarh BJP president Narayan Sahu formally joined BJD at a party workers' conference at Bijepur on Sunday.
Last month, Sahu resigned from the saffron party showing discomfort over the party's work culture.
In October too Sahu had offered to resign from his post after former Bijepur MLA and BJD leader Ashok Panigrahi was embraced by BJP. Then he had denied quiting BJP but had requested the party’s state leadership to relieve him of the district president post so that he could work for the party only as a party worker for the bypoll.
