Odisha CM Declares Sashi Bhusan Behera As BJD Candidate For Kendrapara Assembly Constituency

08 April 2019


Bhubaneswar: BJD supremo-cum-Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Monday declared Finance Minister Sashi Bhusan Behera as the party candidate for Kendrapara Assembly seat.

Behera had been elected as the MLA of Jayadev Constituency in 2014 elections by a margin of over 28,600 votes by defeating his nearest Congress rival Benudhar Bhoi.

However, as BJD is fielding Aurobindo Dhali from the constituency, there was suspense over the denial of ticket to Behera, which was put to rest today.
