Noamundi: Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) is facing stiff opposition from party members in Jagannathpur assembly constituency over the seat allotment to Mangal Singh Soren.
Noamundi BJP Block President Babu Lal Majhi released a press note on Wednesday announcing unanimous protest of the decision taken by party workers to protest the candidature of Mangal Singh Soren.
He alleged that the party leadership was ignoring the party workers’ sentiment. He mentioned that Bipin Purty, a dedicated and popular leader who worked sincerely to build the party for years in Jagannathpur, was denied party ticket.
Mangal Singh Soren recently joined the BJP party and the party made him a candidate from the constituency without taking the local party activists into confidence.
The protesting party workers appealed to the state BJP president Ravindra Rai to reconsider the candidature of Bipin Purty for Jagannathpur assembly segment.
As many as 56 active party activists signed the press note.
