Kendrapara: On the last day of filing nomination for phase four elections, ruling Biju Janata Dal's candidates for Kendrapara Lok Sabha and Assembly seats submitted their papers today with the respective Returning Officers (Collector and Sub-Collector).
Before filling nomination, BJD's MP candidate Anubhav Mohanty accompanied by his wife actress Barsha Priyadarshini and BJD's Kendrapara MLA candidate Sashi Bushan Behera went around the district headquarters town in a rally. A sea of supporters were seen enthusiastic and chanting victory slogans.
It is notable to mention here that BJD supremo-cum-Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik declared Finance Minister Sashi Bhusan Behera as the party candidate for Kendrapara Assembly seat last night. He is contesting against Congress' Ganeshwar Behera and BJP's Sunakar Behera.
Meanwhile, actor-turned-politician Anubhav Mohanty is going to contest against Congress' Dharanidhar Nayak and former BJD MP and veteran leader Baijayant Panda, who joined the BJP this year.
