Patnaik  said the symbol was allotted after Ama Odisha was recognised as a political party by the Election Commission.
Meanwhile, Patnaik met BJP in-charge for Odisha Chandan Mitra here today fuelling speculation about a possible seat sharing arrangement between the two parties for the coming elections.
Asked about such a possibility, Patnaik who is also the editor of ‘Sambad’ said it was a ‘courtesy’ call.

“It is not the first time I have met Chandan Mitra. Since we are a new party, the BJP wants to know how many seats we propose to contest in the elections. The talks were of a general nature ,” he told OST.
