Positive politics on his lips, Samanta seeks votes in Naveen’s name


Phulbani/Bhanjanagar: After getting a ticket from BJD for the Kandhamal Lok Sabha seat, Samanta made an in depth plan to achieve out to voters within the forested and hilly spaces of his constituency, unfold over the districts of Kandhamal, Nayagarh, Boudh and Ganjam. As the constituency is a BJD stronghold, he used to be confident of the fact that folks would attend his rally in massive numbers, particularly those held within the weekly haats.
But Samanta isn't complacent. His involvement in social service through Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences has helped him be told the tribal tongue. At a marketing campaign meeting at Dadki tribal haat in Phulbani block, he addresses ladies with a sentence in Kui and earns appreciative smiles.

“I've come here to serve you. I've been within the field of social service for the previous 27 years. People have noticed my work but I want to do something more for Kandhamal,” says Samanta, while addressing the meeting.

The sandal-shod activist, clad in a white shirt and blue pants, with a Reynolds pen tucked in his pocket, is unfastened along with his smiles and warmth. He is lately staying in a hotel in Phulbani, the headquarters town of Kandhamal, and wakes up early at five.30 am to move out on a morning walk. In the method, he meets folks and discusses other problems with the district over a cup of tea at a local stall. Tuesday morning isn't any other.

He returns to the hotel at 7.30 am. Before coming into the premises, he meets a bunch of girls from close by villages and hears their problems. He smiles and assures them that he'll remedy their issues. After a discussion with party workers, he leaves for Bhanjanagar at 9 am for a road show.


The BJD guy says he has no longer uttered a single word criticising his rivals within the marketing campaign. “I believe in certain politics. I've come here to beg for votes within the name of chief minister Naveen Patnaik. I do not suppose that belittling or mocking others will assist me within the election,” he provides, while going to Bhanjanagar in Ganjam district.


Samanta, in conjunction with Bhanjanagar MLA candidate Bikram Keshari Arukha, begins the road show after paying obeisance to Maa Thakurani at a temple in Bhanjanagar. Braving the sun, they pass previous Nahatotha Sahi, Ratha Sahi, Sivananda Marg, market space, Khalasi Sahi, High faculty chak, State Bank Square and Bagdevi road. The high-decibel marketing campaign ends at 3pm.


“The reaction is overwhelming. I feel very certain about my consequence,” smiles Samanta while returning to Phulbani.
