After Naba Kishor Das, ( the former MLA, Jharsuguda), his daughter Deepali Das has taken command both in the constituency and party affairs. But another BJD leader Trinath Gual has emerged and challenged her within the party. Previously, Trinath was an ardent follower of the late BJD leader Kishor Mohanty.
Due to a political feud with the then leader Naba Das, Trinath Gual broke a decades-long relationship with the BJD and joined the BJP.
