Is Jay On BJP Way?

Is Kendrapara MP Baijayant Panda on his way out from the Governing Biju Janata Dal (BJD)?

This is the indication given by party Spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Pratap Kesari Deb.
Mr.Deb, while reacting over Mr.Panda’s utterance at Mahanga over a officer in the Chief Minister’s Office, said: “The Kendrapara MP is speaking the language of senior BJP leader and Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan apparently keeping in mind the Lok Sabha elections in 2019.”
"That officers doing politics or indulging in politics is the favorite statement of Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan. Today, our Kendrapara MP Baijayant Panda gave similar remark. Why such similarities? "As the general election will be held in 2019, many leaders will change party. Some may join the BJD and some may quit BJD. Similar changes may also take place in BJP," the BJD Spokesperson said.
Mr.Deb’s statement is sufficient to conclude that Mr.Panda, a two time Lok Sabha MP and also a two time Rajya Sabha MP, has fallen from the grace of the Chief Minister.
Mr.Panda’s remarks has helped the opposition BJP, particularly Dharmendra Pradhan, who has been targeting Mr.Patnaik’s trusted officer in the CMO.
The Kendrapara MP has been doing so since last one year and probably for which he was dropped from the post of the BJD Parliamentary Party Spokesperson in May, 2017, said a senior Vice President of BJD.
Mr.Panda often claims that he is the founder member of the BJD and earlier expressed concern over the manner the party was being run. He had also requested the chief minister to discipline the officers who are crossing “Laxman Rekha.”
Mr.Panda’s allegation that a senior Government Officer is interfering in the party affairs today evoked strong reaction from his own party that accused him of speaking in the language of the BJP.
When an officer forgets his service rules and indulges in politics by crossing the 'Laxman Rekha', he should not be given respect, Mr.Panda said today.
"If an officer interferes in the party affairs and shelters persons involved in anti-people activities, there is no need to pay respect to him," Mr.Panda said after inaugurating a drinking water project in his constituency in Cuttack district.
Though Mr.Panda did not name any officer, he apparently referred to an officer considered close to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.
Interestingly, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan today echoed Mr.Panda, while making sarcastic comment on State Administration.
