On Friday, Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Sarat Patnaik on Friday appointed PCC vice-president Suresh Kumar Mohapatra as interim president of the Cuttack City Congress Committee removing Giribala Behera.
Giribala is known to be a close-aide of Moquim.
“It is the right of PCC to form and resolve committees. So I am not the concerned person to comment on it,” Moquim said.
Mohapatra, who was the president of the Cuttack City Congress Committee from 2000 to 2011, has returned to the post after over 10 years. Moquim had replaced him in 2011.
Besides, the PCC President has dissolved the women, youth and other leading committees under the Cuttack City Congress Committee.
It may be recalled that, as many as 30 senior leaders including Ashok Samal, Nikunja Pasayat and Biswajit Das had quit the party. These leaders are said to be good friends of Moquim.
