Bhubaneswar: After winning 12 out of 21 Lok Sabha seats in Odisha, Biju Janata Dal’s newly elected Members of Parliament met party supremo Naveen Patnaik today at his residence and discussed the issues that are needed to be raised in the Parliament.

As per sources, the meeting lasted for over an hour and Patnaik advised the leaders on how they should raise Odisha’s concerns in New Delhi. It was also decided who shall raise which issue and how the State’s well-being should always be the bigger picture.

Anubhav Mohanty informed that he is committed to fight for a railway line in Kendrapara. And, Chandra Sekhar Sahu concluded, “The seasoned politicians have been directed to guide the first-time MPs. We will all raise our voice for 33% reservation for women, more funds for disaster management and strengthen the fight for special category status to Odisha.”
