Riding high on its mega micro management in Padampur Assembly Bypoll at the panchayat level, CM Naveen Patnaik’s physical campaign first time since 2019 and unprecedented polling percentage of 81.29%, ruling BJD is confident of a huge win.
The polling percentage went up to 81.29% from 79.05% in 2019. The BJD sources are confident of 15,000-20,000+ victory margin while some believe it may go beyond 25,000.
On the other hand, BJP is confident of sailing through by 5,000-10,000 votes saying people of Padampur have rejected the BJD and voted for Pradip Purohit.
Silent Voters and Congress Voters hold the key.
