Former Odisha DGP joins BJP

Putting an end to all speculations, former Odisha Director General of Police (DGP) Prakash Mishra joined the BJP at a ‘Mishrana Parba’ in presence of Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and other senior leaders of the party. Apart from Mishra, ex-Congress MLA from Jaleswar Debi Prasanna Chand and former BJD legislator Brundaban Majhi also joined the saffron party.

Later, BJP declared him as candidate for Cuttack Lok Sabha constituency. BJP also declared Kharbela Swain as candidate for Kandhamal. Speaking on the occasion of the joining ceremony, Mishra targeted the ruling-BJD and said, “In the last five years, the level of administration by the Odisha government has hit rock bottom and the people of the State now need a change of guard to free themselves from pain.”

Mishra also clarified that he had never thought about joining a political party in his career, but after being inspired by the enthusiasm to work for the welfare of people under the leadership of PM Modi, he finally decided to join the BJP.

The former Odisha cadre IPS officer further called upon the people and leaders of the party to re-elect PM Modi for the betterment of people of Odisha and the country at large. During the Mishrana Parba ceremony, BJP campaign committee convener Damodar Rout came down heavily on the BJD and said that election tickets are on sale in the ruling party and it is on the verge of collapse.
