Bhubaneswar: Ruling Biju Janata Dal’s (BJD) Kendrapada MP Baijayant Pan0da on Sunday clarified that where he contests the elections from in future will depend on the party and the public.

The clarification came as his recent statement fuelled political speculation that he could switch his constituency from Kendrapada to Sambalpur or Baragarh. Speaking at an event at Sambalpur Press Club Panda had said that he would “serve the people of Western Odisha if given a chance.”

Panda clarified his stand about contesting elections from Sambalpur through a series of tweets on Sunday.
