BJP Announces Names Of Odisha Core Committee Members; MP Aparajita Sarangi Missing From List

Bhubaneswar: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday announced the names of core committee members of its Odisha unit.

The BJP released the list on recommendation of national president of the party JP Nadda. Almost all prominent leaders of the BJP in the state figure in the 17-member list.

Among others, the state core committee members include Union ministers Dharmendra Pradhan, Ashwini Vaishnaw and Biseswar Tudu. BJP’s Odisha president Samir Kumar Mohanty, national vice-president Baijayant Panda, Leader of Opposition Pradipta Kumar Naik, national spokesman Sambit Patra and former Union ministers Jual Oram and Pratap Sarangi also figure in the list.

Interestingly, the party’s firebrand woman leader and Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi has not been included in the core committee. The omission of Sarangi, who has been vociferous in targeting the BJD government in the state on various issues, has raised eyebrows among her followers.
