Tathagata Satpathy (born 1 April 1956) is a member of the 16th Lok Sabha of India. He represents the Dhenkanal constituency of Odisha for the 3rd time and is a member of the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) political party.
In 2009, Satpathy spoke out against conversions to Christianity, alleging that "so much money comes into Odisha for Christian missionary efforts". He also stated that Christians have "offered dalits better chances by offering them jobs, free education, and other benefits that any poor community needs. That’s one reason why there have been mass conversions to Christianity".
