Congress on Saturday expelled former Union Minister Srikant Jena and former MLA Krushna Chandra Sagaria for alleged anti-party activities.
The decision was taken by the Odisha Congress’ disciplinary committee.
It was later informed that Jena and Sagaria have been expelled from the party as per the approval of the All India Congress Committee.
It need be mentioned that the two leaders issued anti-party statements to the media.
While Jena was a former Union Minister in the previous UPA government, Dalit leader Sagaria represented Koraput in the state assembly.
Sagaria had in November resigned from the membership of the Odisha assembly, as he was allegedly upset over failing to ensure justice for a rape and murder victim and her family at Kunduli in Koraput district.
