Jagatsinghpur: At a time when poll candidates are leaving no stone unturned during election campaign to garner support of public, BJD’s Paradip MLA candidate Sambit Routray, in an exemplary act, yesterday lent his support in carrying body of a person to cremation ground in Odisha’s Jagatsinghpur district.
While campaigning in Ranitola village under Tirtol block of the district, Routray came to know about the death of one Mohan Mohapatra in the locality. He immediately abandoned the campaign and reached the spot.
The MLA nominee of BJD then carried the body on his shoulders along with three others and made it reach the cremation ground.
Odisha Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has praised Routray describing him as a “true representative of people”.
ଲୋକଙ୍କ ସୁଖ ଦୁଃଖରେ ସାଥିରେ ଛିଡ଼ା ହେଉଥିବା ନେତା ହିଁ ପ୍ରକୃତ ଜନପ୍ରତିନିଧି। ନିଜ ନିର୍ବାଚନୀ ପ୍ରଚାର ଅଧାରୁ ବନ୍ଦ କରି କୋକେଇକୁ କାନ୍ଧ ଦେଇ ଶ୍ମଶାନରେ ପହଞ୍ଚାଇ ମାନବିକତାର ପରିଚୟ ଦେଇଛନ୍ତି ଆମ ପାରାଦୀପ ବିଧାୟକ ପ୍ରାର୍ଥୀ ସମ୍ବିତ ରାଉତରାୟ। ମୃତକଙ୍କ ଅମର ଆତ୍ମାର ସଦଗତି କାମନା କରିବା ସହିତ ସମ୍ବିତଙ୍କୁ ମୋର ସାଧୁବାଦ। pic.twitter.com/9qepAePjf3
