Bhubaneswar: Former Khurda MLA Jotindra Nath (Jitu) Mitra, who quit BJD just before elections in 2014, today joined the BJD in the presence of party president and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik at Naveen Niwas here.

He quit BJD and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in March 2014 after being denied ticket.

Welcoming Mitra to the party fold, Patnaik said the homecoming of the two-time MLA will certainly strengthen the party organisation.

The homecoming of Mitra assumed significance ahead of the elections.
