Suresh Sahu elected unopposed as Anandpur NAC vice-chairperson

Anandpur: Suresh Kumar Sahu, the councillor from Ward No 14, was today elected unopposed as the vice-chairperson of Anandpur Notified Area Council (NAC).

The Returning Officer announced Sahu’s election after he emerged as the only candidate to file his nominations for the post.

Out of 16 councillors, 14 were present today. But as no candidate other than Sahu filed nomination within the specified time frame, the Returning Officer announced the name of Sahu as the new vice chairperson.

Notably, the State Election Commission (SEC) had ordered re-polling for the post of vice chairperson after the BJD candidate Sandhyarani Behera lost the no trust motion moved against her by 10 councillors. Twelve members in the 16-member civic body voted against her on March 18.
