Bhubaneswar, March 21 (LocalWire): Kandhamal MP Pratyusha Rajeswari Singh, who resigned from the ruling party on Wednesday after being denied the BJD ticket, is all set to join the Congress.
Pratyusha will be formally inducted into the party on 23-24 March but her candidature has not yet been officially announced, informed OPCC chief Niranjan Patnaik.
However, the party is yet to decide which constituency she would contest from.
‘Since we have already announced our candidate for Kandhamal Lok Sabha seat, she might contest the Nayagarh Assembly seat or any other constituency which will be decided after she joins the Congress,’ Niranjan added.
Notably, Pratyusha had earlier expressed her willingness to contest from Nayagarh Assembly seat in a letter to the BJD president Naveen Patnaik.
