Common Men’ In Congress List: Bijay Mohanty, Aparajita Out

By Odisha News Times Bureau On Jan 22, 2017
Bhubaneswar: After much addition and subtraction, the State Congress today came out with its final list of star campaigners for the ensuing three tier rural elections including two common men, a singer and brother of late Lalatendu Bidyadhar Mohapatra (Lulu) apart from Congress heavyweights.
The party has brought Lulu’s brother Lalitendu, a first timer, along with anti liquor leader of Kandhamal Keshamati Pradhan and Rahul Nayak of Tumudibandha who lost his parents in police firing, to the campaigning battle while five party MLA including Yogesh Singh and Krushna chandra Sagaria did not find a place in the list. Singer Narendra Kumar will also be seen campaigning for the Congress. But, the grand old party has excluded the name of veteran cine stars Bijay Mohanty and Aparajita Mohanty, who had unsuccessfully contested for Lok Sabha seats on Congress ticket in last general election.
