Popular Ollywood singer Humane Sagar joined Odisha’s ruling Biju Janata Dal

Bhubaneswar:3/3/19: Popular Ollywood singer Humane Sagar today joined Odisha’s ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) in presence of party supremo and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, a party spokesperson said.

The Titlagarh born singer formally joined the regional party at Naveen Niwas (the residence of Chief Minister) here this afternoon, he said.

“I am impressed by the personality of Naveen Patnaik as he is a pure-hearted man and the developmental works his government has done for the state. I will work for the party as a dedicated worker. I decided to join politics to work for the people,” the popular singer said.

“I am a big fan of Naveen Patnaik,” the singer told, flashing a big smile.

When asked whether he has any plans to contest the polls, Humane said: “It is upto the authority to decide.”

Personalities from the entertainment industry joining politics in the state are nothing new. Earlier, Ollywood actors Aparajita Mohanty, Pinky Pradhan, Mahasweta Ray, Mihir Das, Bijay Mohanty, Uttam Mohanty, Pintu Nanda, Sritam Das, Kuna Tripathy and many more have taken plunge into politics.

Going by record, very few names from the entertainment industry have tasted success in electoral politics. Only a handful like Siddhant Mohapatra, Akash Das Nayak and Prashant Nanda could influence voters in their favour.
