Bhubaneswar: Former BJP MP and present Utkal Bharat Chief MA Kharvel Swain may come back to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) very soon. BJP’s Central leaders are in constant touch with him and it is going to be turned up shortly as Kharvel has shown a good signal. This is considered as home coming of Kharvel- sources said. After arrival he will be offered Loksabha Ticket from Balasore constituency as he represented this constituency in the 13th Loksabha.
BJP’s Primeminister candidate Narendra Modi’s visit may witness the joining of this former leader, sources from the party said.
After break up with BJD in Odisha, BJP is considered as a weak national party the state. Recent urban polls have already established it. Even the NAMO mantra is not working here. The party is not getting proper candidates to fight in 21 LS constituencies in the state. So this is the right time to get the past time firebrands to the party together.
This former Indian Revenue Officer has been elected to the Loksabha 3 times earlier and last time was defeated by the Congress candidate Srikant Jena. He is considered as a close associate of LK Advani. Even if the state leaders were jealous about his growth, he was assigned the position of BJP’s deputy chief whip in the Loksabha. In 2009 he de-associated himself from the party alleging the over interference of the RSS in the party. He also rebelled against the former state BJP presidents Suresh Pujari and Juel Oram.
