Even as a week has not lapsed since the death of Dhamnagar MLA Bishnu Charan Sethi, the ruling Biju Janata Dal and the Congress have chalked out strategies to win the by-polls which will be held for the vacant seat. 

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) criticized the state government’s hush-hush strategy to initiate the by-polls process for the vacant Dhamnagar constituency before the leader’s eleventh day death ritual although it claims to have prepared for the poll.
