Bhubaneswar: BJD boss and odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday ousted Ollywood comic performer Tatwa Prakash Satpathy otherwise known as Papu Pom from BJD.
“BJD Chief and Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik today ousted Tatwa Prakash Satpathy – Papu Pom – from BJD,” Party general secretary and Industries Minister declared on Wednesday.
The expulsion was along expected lines after comic actors’s name cropped in two back-to-back scandals – his nexus with chit fund company Oscar and its chief Prabhas Rout and sexual harassment of a minor girl on the pretext of giving her a break in films.
Pappu has remained incommunicado since a complaint was filed against him at the Mahila police station here on behalf of the minor victim of the casting couch syndrome by Friends Foundation Trust. A police team that went to his Jagannath Vihar residence here yesterday returned empty handed.
