After joining the saffron party Rao told media persons that he had been working for the Biju Janata Dal in Gajapati, which was a stronghold of the Congress party, but the BJD had made injustice with him not allocating ticket to him for Paralakhemundi Assembly seat.

Following this, Rao along with supporters, including 30 Sarpanches, 32 Samiti members, three Zilla Parishad members and two block chairmen also quitted the ruling BJD and joined the national party.

Notably, Rao had tendered his resignation to the BJD Supremo Naveen Patnaik yesterday after being denied a party ticket to contest for Paralakhemundi Assembly seat in the upcoming polls.
