NF Bureau: Unconfirmed reports suggest that BJP’s National Spokesperson Dr. Sambit Patra may contest from Puri Lok Sabha seat, while its State General Secretary Bhrugu Baxipatra may get the nod from Berhampur in the upcoming general elections. As expected, Aparajita Sarangi is all set to contest from the prestigious Bhubaneswar Parliamentary seat.
Several other names are also doing the rounds. They include Lekhashree Samantasinghar (Balasore), Pitambar Acharya (Cuttack), Rudra Narayan Pani (Dhenkanal), Jayaram Pangi (Koraput), Suresh Pujari (Sambalpur) and Sukanta Panigrahi (Kandhamal).
However, BJP sources refused to confirm the reports saying these are mere speculative.
