Bhubaneswar: The wife and son of Patkura MLA Bed Prakash Agrawal today met BJD president and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik at Naveen Nivas here.
Bed Prakash has again been named as the BJD MLA candidate from Patkura AC, but he hasn’t collected the ticket yet due to illness. He is undergoing treatment at a city-based hospital here for last few days.
Sources said the party is contemplating to give tickets to either to the wife or son of the six-time MLA.
However, both the mother-son duo did not divulge anything to the media persons on what transpired between them and the party supremo.
BJP has fielded senior leader Bijoy Mahapatra as its official candidate from Patkura. Mohapatra has represented Patkura four times in the State Assembly. He had unsuccessfully fought the 2014 poll from Mahakalpada.
