Bhubaneswar: Senior leader Dilip Ray is likely to meet Chief Minister and BJD president Naveen Patnaik at Naveen Niwas, the residence of the CM here this evening.

Following his resignation from BJP in December last year, speculation is rife that Ray, whose career was built in the shadow of the late Biju Patnaik, will be returning to the Biju Janata Dal where he was a founder-member.

The industrialist-politician, who won the Rourkela seat with a handsome margin in 2014, also resigned as an MLA over the BJP-led NDA Government’s failure to deliver on the promises for a second bridge over the Brahmani River and upgrading of the IGH to a super speciality medical college – two emotive issues that he had campaigned on in 2014 and consistently lobbied for since.
