Bhubaneswar: Congress on Tuesday congratulated Rajya Sabha MP Pyarimohan Mohapatra who announced the launching of a new anti-BJD political party Odisha Janmorcha.
"We extend our good wishes to him (Mohapatra) for floating a new political party in the state," said Jagdish Tytler, AICC in charge of Odisha.
Tytler, however, made it clear that Congress was not thinking of forging any alliance with OJM or any other political party in the state.
The Congress leader`s message to Mohapatra is significant as the Rajya Sabha MP immediately after floating OJM had said that leaders of certain national parties were in touch with him to dislodge the BJD government.
Meanwhile, the newly-appointed state president of BJP K V Singhdeo has said that his party would fight elections alone.
