Bhubaneswar: In a major jolt to the Congress in Brahmagiri, former late Congress MLA Lalatendu Bidyadhar Mohapatra’s younger brother Lalitendu Mohapatra and daughter Upasana Mohapatra have decided to join the BJP.
Lalitendu and Upasana and activists of the Lulu Sena would join the BJP on October 14. The people of the constituency and the Congress supporters have decided that they would join the saffron party.
In his reaction, BJD general secretary and incumbent Brahmagiri MLA Sanjay Dasburma said, “It is their political decision. It is for the people of Brahmagiri to decide.”
