Bhubaneswar: Biju Janata Dal (BJD) on Sunday changed its candidate for Kakatpur Assembly constituency by fielding Tushar Kanti Behera in place of Surendra Sethi.

On the other hand, Congress named the candidate for Moroda Assembly constituency on Sunday for the upcoming elections. A party statement said, the Central Election Commission of Congress has approved the candidature of Pravash Kar Mohapatra from Morada for the ensuing general elections to the Legislative Assembly.
