Former minister Raghunath Mohanty and sitting MLAs Jitu Patnaik in Champua and Bibhuti Balabantaray in Jatni were the prominent losers as BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik announced the list of candidates for 15 Assembly seats in Odisha a short while ago. The candidates for two Assembly seats – Nialii and Patkura – are still to be named.
