In what qualifies as a great political thriller, RAMESH CHANDRA MAJHI of Biju Janata Dal defeated Indian National Congress's PRADEEP KUMAR MAJHI by a margin of 41,634. After a close shave, RAMESH CHANDRA MAJHI will now govern Nabarangpur for the next five years.
Biju Janata Dal fieled Ramesh Chandra Majhi while the Bahujan Samaj Party placed its bet on Chandradhwaj Majhi, and the Bharatiya Janata Party chose Balabhadra Majhi as their candidate.
