Bhubaneswar/New Delhi: Amid the political hullabaloo revolving round the alleged chinks in the party and followed by twitter-war between two BJD MPs on the issue, Biju Janata Dal (BJD) supremo-cum-Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Monday told media at the national capital that there are no differences in the BJD parliamentary party.
After holding a meeting with all the BJD parliamentarians, both members of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, at the party’s office in the Parliament on the day, the BJD chief declined any differences being talked about among the party MPs.
The Odisha Chief Minister is on his official tour to New Delhi since last week and held a meeting with his party MPs on Monday noon hours.
Sources said, all the BJD MPs, except Rajya Sabha member Dilip Tirkey, attended the meeting with Naveen Patnaik. Tirkey is physically ill for which he had earlier apprised the party high command about his inability to turn up at the vital interactive session.
