Jagatsinghpur, March 20 (LocalWire): Supporters of Balikuda-Erasama MLA Prasant Muduli on Wednesday threatened to quit BJD, if the party continues to deny a ticket to their leader.
The ruling party has nominated Raghunandan Das from the seat this time. Das had quit BJP to join BJD last year.
All party members, from panchayat to block-level, have opposed the high command’s decision, and are ready to quit, if he’s still denied a ticket, the local BJD unit said in a press release.
Muduli’s supporters said they will boycott polls if their demand is not met.
The sitting MLA has worked tirelessly for 10 years to strengthen the party. Now, to deny him a ticket, is injustice only to him but also to the people of the constituency, the release said.
