Author : Monalisa Digal | Posted on: 2019-03-20

Dr. Sambit Patra, who is one of the official national spokespersons of the Bharatiya Janata Party, is going to contest the Lok Sabha election from Puri constituency, according to reliable sources in BJP, who spoke to The Odisha Today requesting anonymity.

 

In the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections in 2014, he campaigned for BJP and gained visibility when he caught the eyes of Union Minister Arun Jaitley and thereafter he was appointed him as the national spokesperson of BJP. In 2017, the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) appointed him as an independent director of ONGC. Though that has been challenged now, on the ground of bona fide, by Mr. Prashant Bhusan in the Supreme Court of India

 

According to sources, BJP thinks that Dr. Sambit Patra is quite a strong candidate to fight from Puri constituency because he will raise the issues of Odisha in a more considerate and specific manner. Leaders in the BJP believe that he will bring a momentum to the party election machinery of the state and can effectively put the Naveen govt into dock through his ability of effectively presenting various issues. He has also a very strong national profile.

 

Dr. Patra is a qualified physician and holds his Master of Surgery (MS) in from SCB Medical College, Cuttack.

 

As BJP’s national spokesperson, he is known for his frequent presence in several TV programmes and debates. He still is a bachelor and very disciplined soldier of the party. The news has elated the party cadres in Odisha making them euphoric about the good showing of BJP in the forthcoming election.
