Lalitendu or Upasana? Who will be BJP's pick for Brahmagiri seat? 

As for rival Dasburma's chances of contesting from the Bramhagiri seat, Upasana said, “We are hardly concerned about whoever comes or goes out or whoever is in front of us. We are looking after our organisation and want to work for our people. We are born in Bramhagiri and will stay in this soil.”

The political atmosphere is gradually warming up in the Brahmagiri Assembly constituency of Puri. Speculations are rife over who will be the BJP's pick for the Brahmagiri seat – incumbent MLA Lalatendu Bidyadhar Mohapatra or his niece Upasana Mohapatra? 

As per reports, former Brahmagiri MLA and senior BJD leader Sanjay Dasburma is keen on the Satyabadi constituency, which has triggered infighting with incumbent MLA Uma Samantaray there.
