BJD Suspends Former MLA Jiban Pradip Dash For Anti-Party Activities

Bhubaneswar: The Biju Janta Dal (BJD) today suspended Jiban Pradip Dash with immediate effect, said an order signed by the party’s General Secretary (Media Affairs).

Jiban was the former MLA of Balasore Sadar Assembly constituency. He was defeated by BJP’s Madan Mohan Dutta in 2019 Assembly elections by a margin of 13,406 votes. Dutta’s death due to a cardiac arrest in June this year prompted the by-elections held on November 3.
