Bhubaneswar: In a jolt to the Congress just before polls, sitting Salepur MLA Prakash Behera resigned from the primary membership of the party here today morning.
In his resignation letter to AICC chief Rahul Gandhi, he has written that he was humiliated time and again after being removed as DCC President of Cuttack district. "My grievance was not considered duly by the PCC. I have worked in Congress for last 20 years but the party has neglected me of late," he states as the reason for resigning from the party's primary membership.
Speculations are rife that Prakash Behera might join BJP soon.
