It is to be noted here that ever since he resigned as the Speaker of the State Assembly in June last year on health grounds, Patro is staying away from active politics.

Surjya Narayan Patro who also was the Minister of several important departments of the State government had decided not to take up further assignments in the government.

His son Biblab Patro is tipped to be the candidate from Digapahandi in 2024 assembly polls and take over the reins.
