Two senior BJP leaders, Dilip Ray and Bijoy Mohapatra, quit the party in Odisha on Friday, declaring in a joint resignation letter to party president Amit Shah that they would not stand “being treated like furniture”. Both were members of the ruling party’s national executive. Dilip Ray and Bijoy Mohapatra alleged infighting in the party’s Odisha unit and said several leaders had remained silent fearing they would be denied tickets to contest next year’s state election. They said their suggestions had upset “egocentric” leaders.
