According to the list, the ruling party has chosen Sanghamitra Dalei for the Berhampur Municipal Corporation (BeMC), Sulochana Das for Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) and Subash Singh for Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC).
BJD president and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik selected the candidates, according to a party release.
Before poll notification issued by the State Election Commission, the Odisha Government had earlier announced reservation list for the Mayor posts of the three municipal corporations. While the Mayor seats of BeMC and BMC Mayor have been reserved for women, the CMC seat remains unreserved.
By now, the Congress has announced names of Mayor Candidates for the CMC and the BMC. While the party is yet to declare its nominee for the BeMC, the BJP is expected to declare nominees for the three coveted civic posts in a day or two.
