Mahakalpara, Apr 14:
Bollywood actor Mahima Chaudhry and BJP’s senior leader Dillip Ray today campaigned intensively for the veteran Odisha politician and BJP candidate in the Mahakalpara constituency Bijoy Mohapatra.
Mahima Choudhry held road shows during her visit to several pockets of Mahakalpara constituency to canvass for Mohapatra before addressing an election rally here.
She appealed to the people to vote for the ‘kamal’ symbol in large numbers and elect ‘Bijoy Mohapatraji’ to the Odisha assembly with a huge margin.
Addressing an impressive motor cycle rally that started from the Canal bridge here, Dillip Ray exhorted voters to rally behind ‘Bijoy bhai’ and elect him to the Assembly because he is one of the senior-most and widely respected leaders in the state.
Ray said Mohapatra has a thorough grasp over the politics and economy of Odisha and what’s more, has an excellent rapport with the party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
“His entry into the Assembly is important not only for Mahakalpara but also for the larger interest of the state,” he said hinting at his bigger role post-polls.
