Damodar Rout likely to name new party ‘Biju Samatakranti Dal’

Bhubaneswar: Former minister and BJD leader, Damodar Rout announced that the name of his new political party is likely to be ‘Biju Samatakranti Dal.’

While speaking to mediapersons in Paradip today, Rout said “We are going to form a regional party. Even though the name has not been finalised, I have suggested ‘Biju Samatakranti Dal’. Other members of the party may also come up with other names.”

The expelled BJD leader had announced about his new party last month stating that it will be named after former Chief Minister late Biju Patnaik.

Ever since Rout’s expulsion for his alleged anti-party activities, he has been on the centre stage of Odisha politics. The senior leader was expelled in September just days after alleging multiple instances of corruption in various departments of the State government.
