Mr. Panda, who is the vice-president of IMFA, India's largest, fully integrated producer of ferro alloys, was suspended from the party with immediate effect by Chief Minster and BJD president Naveen Patnaik. IMFA is into mining, ferro alloys and power in Orissa and is owned by Panda's family.
Panda was elected to Lok Sabha in 2009 and 2014 from Kendrapara Lok Sabha constituency.
Panda's claim that he was a founder member of the BJD was totally baseless, and he had also openly campaigned for nominees of opposition parties during the panchayat elections previous year, added Patro. Apprehending serious conflict of interest, which would have compromised the interests of the state and the country, the party leadership refused to nominate him for the chairmanship of the standing committee, said the BJD release.

Like a number of industry analysts, Capital is not convinced by bitcoin's value as a commodity. At its lows on Tuesday, bitcoin suffered its biggest daily decline in four months.
Panda also denied the allegations levelled against him as false and baseless. The party said that in 2014, Panda drew an "annual salary and allowance of Rs. This step reflects helplessness of CM & BJD Supremo Naveen Patnaik". "However, if he is nominated, he stated that he would be able to lobby and get it", Patro said. He also alleged conspiracy against him while expressing grief. He made the statement in reference to Patnaik's Private Secretary IAS officer V Kartikeyan Pandian.
BJD's Kendrapara observer Pramila Mallick and Cuttack observer Usha Devi have submitted inquiry reports into allegations against the MP.
Over the past few days, MP Jay Panda has been in news soon after members of BJD's Nischintakoili block had threatened to disrupt the inauguration of a MPLAD-funded project by the parliamentarian in Buhalo Panchayat.
"Everyone is aware that this service officer is interfering in party affairs and unconstitutionally indulging in politics", his office maintained.
