- Naveen Patnaik today expelled Tattwa Prakash Satapathy from the party
- Papu on the loose
- Commissionerate Police has formed a special team to seize him
Bhubaneswar, 29th June, 2016 (OdishaLIVE Bureau): In the course of events, Ollywood’s recognized comedian Tattwa Prakash Satapathy alias Papu Pom Pom has been thrown out of the Biju Janta Dal (BJD) by party supremo Naveen Patnaik.
BJD General Secretary Debi Prasad Mishra has informed, “The President of Biju Janata Dal, Naveen Patnaik today expelled Tattwa Prakash Satapathy from the party. A press notification on this context has been issued.”
It’s been considered that this drastic step taken by BJD is the outcome of the series of allegations that were brought upon Papu. On 21st June an accusation that Papu is involved in sexual harassments, was brought forward by a newcomer in Ollywood industry without revealing her identity. Again, a second allegation on the 23rd June, tattered the image of Papu Pom Pom and the final blow came when a complaint was made by a minor on 25th June about casting couch against him.
An FIR was lodged on 27th June by a NGO against Papu who is on the loose and the Commissionerate Police has formed a special team to seize him.
Papu joined politics before 2014 elections. He was given ticket by BJD for Champua Constituency in Kendujhar District. But Papu couldn’t pass the test and got third position with only 9,551 votes polled on his account. In the election, Papu was among the lead campaigners those who had from Odia Cine industry.
In the recent past Papu was in news when Prabhas Rout, Managing Director of Oscar chit fund was arrested by Crime Branch. It was alleged that Papu, the lead actor of 2 of the films produced by Prabhas Rout, ‘Balunga Toka’ & ‘Rangeela Toka’, had consumed public funds through the producer.
