BJD President Naveen Patnaik made it clear that Rita Sahu will contest Bijepur bypoll

Bhubaneswar:25/9/17; Odisha Chief Minister and Biju Janata Dal (BJD) President Naveen Patnaik today made it clear that late Congress MLA Subal Sahu’s wife Rita Sahu will contest Bijepur bypoll on BJD ticket.

Speculations were rife over the Bijepur BJD ticket after the opposition party’s late MLA’s family members joined the ruling party on Saturday.

“I will contest the Bijepur bypoll on BJD ticket and full fill the dreams of my husband”, Rita Sahu had said after joining BJD at a special programme at the party headquarters here.

She along with her son Sumit Sahu joined the ruling party with around five thousands supporters, following which speculations over the Bijepur assembly constituency were rounding, which is going to face a bypoll soon.

Notably, the Bijepur assembly seat is lying vacant after the death of Congress MLA Subal Sahu following prolonged illness on August 22.
