Suryabanshi made his political debut in November 2022 during the by-election which was held following the sudden demise of his father Dhamnagar MLA, Bishnu Charan Sethy. Ever since he won the by-election comfortably, he had drawn the attention of party leaders and workers.

Besides, he was actively participating in the students’ politics during his college days, which is why he was made the State Coordinator of the Youth wing of the BJP.

Suryabanshi holds a BTech degree in Electrical Engineering and an LLB degree from the FM University in Balasore. He was working as a software developer at TCS and a system engineer at Adani DPCL in Dhamra before beginning his active political career.
