JB’s son Pruthvi may contest polls
Bhubaneswar: Former chief minister and veteran Congress leader late Janaki Ballav Patnaik’s son Pruthvi Ballav Patnaik may contest Assembly polls from Begunia constituency.
“I am not sure whether party will give ticket to me. If party gives me ticket, I will try my best,” Pruthvi told mediapersons.
J B Patnaik’s son, who has stayed away from politics, will make his foray into electoral politics, if given a party ticket.
JB Patnaik had represented Begunia constituency twice in his five decade-long political career.
