Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-03-25

 Kharavela Swain, president of the Utkal Bharat (UB), officially joined the BJP today in presence of Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and other senior leaders at the BJP headquarters.

 

Swain joined the party along with his other office bearers of the Utkal Bharat like Sriharsha Swain, secretary (UB); Suresh Kumar Sahu, media chief (UB); Jagdish Pradhan, yuva (youth wing ) president (UB);  Debabrata Tripathi, yuva  (youth wing) secretary (UB); Pratyush Nayak, Vidyarthi (UB) and few others.

 

It is to be mentioned that Kharbela Swain was earlier three times BJP MP from Balasore constituency. After leaving BJP, he formed a new regional party named Utkal Bharat and also contested the 2014 elections under that banner.


In the last five years, he has been fighting against the alleged misgovernance of BJD and Naveen Patnaik. In the last few days there has been talk of Kharbela Swain joining BJP. Finally today it happened after much back-room negotiation and give-and-take.

 

Speaking on the occasion, Swain said he has been immensely influenced by the vision of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has made India a world power in five years. He also confirmed that he will contest from the Kandhamal MP constituency.  

 

He further added that joining BJP is like homecoming. 

 

 It’s just a matter of time to see whether swain get to win the vote and trust of the people of Kandhmal constituency.
