Bhubaneswar, March 25 (LocalWire): BJP’s state vice-president and spokesperson Pitamber Acharya will contest against Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik in Hinjili.
Commenting on his candidature, Acharya said, “Naveen Patnaik is not a leader, no one from Hinjili knew him in 2000.”
“People who established him here are no longer a part of BJD”, he added.
Asked about possibility of his victory, Acharya said, “BJD’s core in Hinjili is falling apart, which is why Naveen Patnaik added Bijepur to his name. Our victory is certain in Hinjili,” Acharya said.
