Bhubaneswar: Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said that the BJP would “definitely” win the coming by-election in the Bijepur Assembly constituency in Bargarh district. Pradhan said that the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) is now rejected by people. The Bharatiya Janata Party is definitely going to come out victorious in the Bijepur bypoll.
Referring to the announcement of the BJD to field deceased Congress MLA Subal Sahu’s wife Rita Sahu as its candidate for the by-election, Pradhan said that “no individual or sympathy factor” would work in Bijepur.
He said the BJD Government’s “inefficiency, ineptness and corruption” would lead to the ruling party’s defeat in the bypoll. In fact, the BJD would suffer its ultimate fall in the 2019 general elections as people have made up their minds to end the prolonged BJD rule, he added.
