Since his ouster from Biju Janata Dal, everyone in Odisha is speculative
on Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda’s next political move, what would be his next move and
which party would he opt to land up in. And, if not joining any party, what
could be his next course of action? Is he planning for a new party because the
current political situation is quite similar to that of the 1997 when the Biju
Janata Dal (BJD) emerged by splitting the old Janata Dal?

At 47, G Dharma Rao of Badaputi village in Chhatrapur block of Odisha’s Ganjam district suddenly finds himself becoming a burden on his family. He was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) two years ago. Dharma is now unable to do any work and is undergoing dialysis in a Bhubaneswar hospital twice a week.
“We have already spent over 5 lakh rupees for his treatment by taking hand loans from relatives and others at an interest of 2 percent/month,” said G Aimma (42), Dharma’s wife.
