The political parties come and go, but the leader remain! There’re very few moments when politicians makes us proud. It’s one of them!
BJD removed Baijayant Panda from party spokes person designation & even some ruling BJD workers allegedly hurled stones and eggs at him in a recent meeting but no one can deny the truth and fact that if there’s any leader in Odisha now who’s having the potential to take Odisha to a new height, then it is Baijayant Jay Panda.
Not one or two but so many important bills has been introduced by him in the parliament in the past. One of them is a Private Members bill in which he proposed to reduce the consumption of tobacco products not only in Odisha but in India.
And now Baijayant Panda has been appointed as the ‘Official Parliamentary Observer’ for the UK[United Kingdom] general elections. The first MP from Odisha to get such assignment in a foregin soil and that too in Britain. Panda has been nominated to the UK Election Assessment Mission to act as the Observers by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, recently.

India is sending its Parliamentarians following a request by the UK Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA). The CPA is an international community/organisation with over 180 Commonwealth Parliaments and Legislatures which works to support good governance, democracy and human rights.
Whenever national level elections are held, the CPA requests its member countries, which includes India, to send its representatives as election observers to ensure a free and fair polling process.
