Writer Hussain Rabi Gandhi joins BJD in Odisha

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

Gandhi, the former editor of State Government’s mouthpiece, Utkal Prasanga, joined the party in presence of Chief Minister and BJD Supremo Naveen Patnaik during a programme at Naveen Niwas.

As the countdown has begun for the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections, the writer is believed to have joined the party with a hope to get a ticket or a political position.

Meanwhile, BJD MLA from Nilgiri, Sukant Nayak, resigned from the party citing ‘negligence’ towards him in the party.
