Even senior leader Pradip Purohit and actor-turned-politician Pinki Pradhan also joined the general meeting and procession in Brajrajnagar.

Meanwhile, BJD's candidate Alaka Pradhan also campaigned in Lakhanpur area. She was accompanied by several prominent and senior leaders of the party. The ruling party had organised several meetings and processions. Many party leaders including ministers campaigned for their candidate.

"People in large have extended their support to us. The voters are daring the scorching heat to stand with us. We will visit door-to-door to learn about the issues faced by the residents of Brajrajnagar and leave no stone unturned to resolve those," said Alaka Pradhan.
