Bhubaneswar, July 6: A delegation of the ruling BJD today met senior Congress leader and Rajgangpur MLA C S Raazen Ekka and requested him to support NDA’s candidate Droupadi Murmu in the July 18 Presidential election.

The delegation including Pritiranjan Gharai, Tusharkanti Behera, Snehangini Chhuria, and Rajkishore Das, met Ekka at his government quarters and conveyed the party’s message to support and ensure Murmu’s victory, on behalf of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik. They asked Ekka to support Murmu for tribal rights as he himself belongs to the tribal community.

However, Ekka said Congress’ ideology is different than the saffron party’s ideology.

Clearing the air on his stand, Ekka said “Congress had declared Yashwant Sinha as the joint candidate of Opposition before the announcement of Murmu’s candidature. I will abide by the directions of the party’s high command and support our candidate.”
