Ex-Odisha CM Hemananda Biswal’s Brother Shifts Political Allegiance Again, Joins BJP
Jharsuguda: Bihari Chandra Biswal, brother of former Odisha Chief Minister Hemananda Biswal, joined Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) on Friday evening
After quitting ruling BJD, Biswal and his daughter-in-law Jyotshna Biswal joined the BJP at the party’s ‘Misrana Parba’ function held at Jharsuguda in the presence of Biramitrapur MLA Shankar Oram, BJP state secretary Tankadhar Tripathy and Jharsuguda district president Mangal Sahu.
Biswal said that he decided to join the saffron party having been inspired by the ideology of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and slammed the ruling BJD for ‘corruption’.
Notably, Biswal along with his brother Khirod Chandra Biswal had joined BJD in 2017, expressing anguish over the activities of Congress in Jharsuguda and apparent loss of trust in the party.
Biswal had then said that he was inspired by the ideology of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.
