Bhubaneswar: Veteran Odia movie actor Mihir Das and Ollywood actress Anu Choudhury will join Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) tomorrow, informed party’s spokesperson Pitambar Acharya today.
Besides, former Satyabadi MLA Ramaranjan Baliarsingh, who had recently resigned from the primary membership of Biju Janata Dal (BJD), will also join the saffron party tomorrow at the BJP’s state headquarters here.
“The development in the country by the Narendra Modi-led government is quite visible. I am willing to join the BJP and contribute towards some welfare works,” Das said.
“It is unfortunate that Odisha is often categorized as a backward state. Besides, the state government hasn’t taken any step towards development of art and culture,” the actor said.
On the other hand, Choudhury said she decided to join BJP after being inspired by the ideology of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
