Bhubaneswar: Electioneering for the Patkura assembly constituency has ended today. Polling will be held on 20th, July. The election for this constituency had been postponed due to the sudden demise of BJD candidate Bed Prakash Agrawal. Due to cyclone Foni it had been further extended.
BJD has fielded Sabitri Agrawal, wife of Bed Prakash Agrawal in his place to garner sympathy. BJP candidate and heavy weight leader Bijay Mohapatra is trying his luck to win. He has been out of the assembly for the last 19 years. Once upon a time he was very powerful in BJD.
Congress candidate Jayant Mohanty is also contesting like before. All the star campaigners had participated in the electioneering for their party candidates. Massive arrangements have been made by the administration for smooth and fair election.
