Bhubaneswar, Feb 26: As the Koraput assembly seat election approaches, the political landscape is ablaze with activity.

The current BJD MLA, Raghuram Padal, finds himself amidst uncertainty regarding his candidacy for the upcoming election. Speculation is rife that the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) might opt not to nominate him again, leading to a surge in the number of contenders within the party.

Meanwhile, Dambur Naik, a prominent social worker, has been making significant strides across the constituency. His campaign posters featuring images of CM Naveen Patnaik, Biju Patnaik, and the BJD emblem have become ubiquitous. Naik has been actively involved in community engagement efforts and has been rallying party members to his cause.

In response to the shifting political landscape, Raghuram Padal has realigned himself politically. He has forged a close alliance with former district BJD president Iswar Panigrahi, following Panigrahi’s recent elevation to the state party executive body and the appointment of former MP Jhinna Hikakka as the district BJD president.

These developments have completely reshaped the political dynamics in the Koraput assembly segment. Dambur Naik appears to be emerging as a leading contender for the BJD ticket, as evidenced by his interactions with key party leaders at the state level. His confidence in securing the party's nomination and contesting the forthcoming election under the BJD banner is palpable.

With the stage set, the race is intensifying, and winds of change are sweeping through Koraput.
