Writer Hussain Rabi Gandhi joins BJD


Bhubaneswar: Ahead of the 2019 general elections, renowned writer Hussain Rabi Gandhi joined Odisha’s ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) today.

Gandhi, the former editor of Utkal Prasanga, joined the party in presence of Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik at the latter’s residence (Naveen Niwas) here.

It is now speculated that the eminent writer has joined the BJD with a hope to get a ticket or a political position as there is hardly a month left for Odisha to go general polls in four phases starting April 11.

In the meanwhile, BJD’s Nilgiri MLA Sukant Nayak today tendered his resignation from the primary membership of the ruling party citing ‘neglect’ by party functionaries and mental harassment by party’s district president.
