Bhubaneswar: Muktikant Biswal, who hogged the limelight for walking for 71 days covering more than 1,500 km in his attempt to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to remind the latter of the promises he had made during his visit to Rourkela, today decided not to contest election from Rourkela Assembly as Congress candidate.

Biswal has been named by the Congress as its candidate from the Rourkela Assembly constituency for the upcoming polls.

Sources said the other Congress aspirants opposed the candidature of Biswal. As result, Biswal decided to withdraw from the direct politics and asserted that he will continue to work for the development of Rourkela.
