Bhubaneswar: Another regional party to be formed by Former BJD leader Damodar Rout to counter Biju Janata Dal(BJD). “A meeting will be held on this issue on November 9 and 10 after which a formal announcement would be made on November 11 and 12 said Dr. Rout on Wednesday.
Rout said the party will follow the principles and ideologies of former chief minister late Biju Patnaik. He, however, denied the possibility of an alliance with any other political party.
The objective of the new regional party will be to strongly oppose the ruling BJD which has deviated from the ideals of the legendary leader Biju Patnaik,” Rout said.
He said the state government is against the formation of a new regional party and is trying to create dissension among the leaders who are keen to join him.
