Bhubaneswar, August 26 (Odisha.in) Noted Oriya film star and former Minister Prashant Nanda who has resigned from Bharatiya Janata Party (B.J.P) couple of days ago, would join the Nationalist Congress Party (N.C.P) led by Sharad Power.
According to sources close to Nanda, recently he had met Power along with Orissa Gana Parishad convener Bijoy Mohapatra and had prolonged discussions with him. In an informal chat with Odisha.in Nanda said that he will fight till the last to ensure defeat of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Biju Janata Dal (BJD), led by Naveen Patnaik.
Nanda had told earlier that if he would produce and direct a film, he would play the role of the hero and would like to offer the role of villain to Naveen Patnaik. The BJD leaders had quietly swallowed such statement of Nanda.
