Bhubaneswar, Mar 24:
Leader of the Opposition in the Odisha Assembly Narasingha Mishra today tendered his resignation from the Business Advisory Committee (BAC).
“In pursuance to my declaration in the floor of the House on 22nd March, 2017, I hereby submit my resignation from the Business Advisory Committee of the Odisha Legislative Assembly. This may be accepted forthwith,” Mishra wrote to the Secretary, Odisha Legislative Assembly today.
Mishra told newsmen that he had resigned from the BAC in protest against the autocratic attitude of the state government in the Odisha Assembly. He said he has resigned from the BAC since the government was not giving due importance to the Committee.
According to reports, Mishra had announced on the floor of the House on March 22 to resign from the BAC since the Speaker had permitted the government to run the House in a partisan manner while the BAC meeting was on.
Notably, Mishra had yesterday written to the Chief Secretary to get the red beacon atop his official vehicle removed. He had also asked to withdraw security provided to him.
