BERHAMPUR: The by-election for the ward number 14 of the Bhanjanagar Notified Area Council (NAC) in Ganjam district would be held on July 31. By-election had to be held for this ward as its young councillor Dilip Nayak had died. The BJD has fielded Shantilata Patra as its candidate from this ward and the Congress candidate is Bhaskar Bisoi. The BJD is trying hard to win this ward as Bhanjangar happens to be the home town of State Cabinet Minister Bikram Keshari Arukh.
