Dhamnagar By-Poll: Rajendra Das Releases His Campaigners List

Bhadrak: While BJD has been making a last-ditch attempt to convince Rajendra Das to pull out of the Dhamnagar by-election race, the rebel candidate, who has filed nominations as an independent candidate, on Monday released his list of campaigners, which included people of the constituency.

Das’ entry has made the by-election interesting as it is likely to become a four-horse race with BJP’s Suryabanshi Suraj and Congress’ Baba Harekrushna Sethi in the fray. It has, however, queered the ruling party’s pitch, which played the woman card by fielding Tihidi block chairperson Abanti Das to counter the sympathy wave in favour of the Suryabanshi, son of Bishnu Sethi whose demise necessitated the by-election.

Earlier in the day, Das asserted that there was no question of withdrawing his nomination.
