ONI Bureau: The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) is all set to get a shot in the arm while Congress would lose a warrior in Western Odisha with Jharsuguda MLA Naba Kisore Das joining the ruling party soon.
The news of Naba Das joining BJD was doing the rounds for the last few months. However, it was delayed due to the changes at organisation level within the Congress party in Odisha.
A recent photo of Naba Das and his family members meeting CM Naveen Patnaik in private has fuelled speculations about the inevitable that’s going to happen soon.
Although sources close to Naba Das termed it as a courtesy meet and normal photo-op, the political pundits have sensed the change in Odisha politics.
