Senior BJP leaders Dharmendra Pradhan, Jual Oram, KV Singhdeo, Baijayant Panda, Basant Panda as well as Odisha In-charge Arun Singh were present at the occasion.
Balabhadra Majhi had resigned from the BJD on March 14 by sending a four-page resignation letter to CM Naveen Patnaik, after being denied a ticket this time.

He won the Lok Sabha polls by defeating incumbent Pradeep Majhi of the Congress by just over 2,000 votes in a tight contest.
