Expelled Congress leader Srikant Jana has alleged the party Chief Rahul Gandhi of surrender himself before the Odisha’s mining mafias and Patnaik family.
Mr. Jena further threatens that he would ‘expose’ Mr. Gandhi to such an extent that later he would not be eligible to show his face in public. He was quoted in a press conference, saying: “I am glad that I am relieved from the responsibility of remaining in the Congress party. I had written many letters to Rahul Gandhi asking whether he will stand with Patnaik brothers and mining mafias or with the people of Odisha.”
Dissatisfied with his expulsion from Congress, Mr. Jena said that “Rahul Gandhi chose to stand with mining mafias and Patnaik brothers. This is not expulsion, I had already written a letter requesting him to accept my proposition or else relieve me from the party. I wanted to expose him but he has exposed himself.”
On Friday, Mr. Jean and former Koraput MLA Krushna Chandra Sagaria were expelled from the primary membership of Congress, accused of “anti-party activities” by Odisha unit, follows suggestions from All India Congress Committee (AICC).
He further claims that Mr. Gandhi had decided that the Odisha government should remain with the Patnaik family and not with others.
The former party leader said that he will everywhere campaign and ‘expose’ Rahul Gandhi. “This is just the beginning. On January 25, I will give certain facts. The full country will know what Rahul Gandhi is and what he is protecting,” added recently expelled Srikant Jana.
