The missing MLA of Orissa Ramesh Rout came back on saturday and reported before Orissa speaker Pradeep Amat.It was a huge relief not only for government but also for Police offcials who were on their duty to solve the case.
The missing complaint of Mr. Rout was reported before the Athagarh police two days back by his father, Bhaskar Rout on Thursday.Rout was missing from June 21 , the day when he filed his resignation before the speaker of Orissa.A conflict arised at the time of filing the resignation due to the missing of the person and occurrence of two different resignation letters at the same time.Hence, the case was in abeyance.
“Some BJD leaders of Athagarh put mounting pressure on me to resign from MLA post. So I had tendered my resignation to Speaker under duress”, Rout told media persons.” But today, I met and withdraw the resignation before speaker”.
The MLA mentioned the name of Raja babu who threatened him to do so before the speaker during their meetin which continued for more than two hours.”He has mentioned the name of Raja babu”, reported Pradeep Amat before media. Raja is the nick name of Ranendra Pratap Swan, the BD MLA of Athagarh.Swain’s name had initially cropped up when Rout while tendering his resignation letter to Amat on June 20, informed that he stepped down to see Swain enter Assembly n by-election as he is a better and capable leader comparatively.
And Swain says that he is no way connected with the entire issue.His name is dragged intentionally to defame him.
Whatever the case is, it will take some time to come to lime light. Meanwhile Ramesh Rout will remain as the legislator of Athagarh,Orissa.
