Will win Bijepur bypoll by huge margin: Naveen

Bhubaneswar: BJD supremo and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday confidently said that his party will win the Bijepur by-poll in Bargargh district.

Voting for the Bijepur by-poll is scheduled on February 24 whereas counting of votes and declaration of results are on February 28.

On the other hand, Congress is trying hard to retain the seat, which was represented by Subal Sahu for last three terms. The by-elections have been necessitated after the seat fell vacant due to the death of Congress MLA Subal Sahu in April past year.

The byelection has assumed significance for all the three political parties in view of the coming 2019 general election in the state. Union Tribal Welfare Minister Jual Oram, Rural Development Minister Ram kripal Yadav, Textile and Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani are scheduled to campaign for the party candidate in the coming days.

Earlier, the Chief Minister had said that no stones will be left unturned to ensure a thorough investigation into the matter.
