Biswal Daughter Joins BJD

 Sunita Biswal, daughter of former Chief Minister Hemananda Biswal joined the Biju Janata Dal(BJD).

 
Sunita, an office bearer of the SundargarhDistrict Congress, joined the BJD along with hundreds of her supporters in presence of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.

 "I am glad that Srimati Sunita Biswal, daughter of former Chief Minister Hemanada Biswal has joined our party along with her supporters. I welcome them to the party. I am sure they will strengthen the BJD further," BJD Supremo said.

 Ms.Biswal said she joined the regional party after consulting her in-laws and Naba Kishore Das played the key role in roping in her as it will have psychological effect on Congress Veteran, who is trying to upstage apple cart of former Working President of OPCC.

 "Since my father is in the Congress, I was not open to quitting the party.
 "I am impressed by Naveen Patnaik's welfare program for women, farmers and youths. I hope, I will be able to do something for the people of Sundergarh," Sunita told Media after joining the party.
 
Sunita said she has joined the BJD without any condition and will accept whatever decision the party chief takes regarding tickets to contest polls.

Reacting to her daughter's decision, Hemananda Biswal said: "My daughter is quite grown up to take decision on her own. I have nothing to do with this. I continue to remain in the Congress."
 
Mr.Biswal's daughter quit the party barely two days after AICC in-Charge of Odisha Jitendra Singh announced that the Congress will adopt "One Family, One Ticket" Policy in the upcoming elections.
 
Mr.Singh said that some leaders seek tickets for more than one member of their family. However this time, the party has decided that only one ticket will be given to one family.

If a senior family member, to whom the ticket is allotted, decides not to contest, he or she has the option to pass on the ticket to his/her son or daughter, said Mr.Singh on 7 March.
 
However OPCC Chief Niranjan Patnaik has given a twist to the issue and said this Policy may not hold good looking at the emerging scenario in the State.
