As expected, legendary Odia film actor Bijay Mohanty joined Odisha Congress party today and is likely to contest 2014 Lok Sabha election.
Bijay Mohanty, who has worked in over 70 Odia films, said, “I love Congress and therefore joined the party. This platform can give me an opportunity to serve the people who have given me a lot all along.”
Asked if he would contest the ensuing elections, Bijay Mohanty, whose name is being circulated as the probable Congress candidate from Bhubaneswar Lok Sabha seat, said, “The party will take a decision in this regard. I will prefer to contest from any Lok Sabha seat.”
