New Delhi,14/03/19:Damodar Rout, an MLA in the Odisha Assembly and former minister in the BJD government, on Thursday joined the BJP in presence of senior party leaders.

Rout said he would work for the ouster of the Patnaik government in the Assembly elections scheduled to be held along with the Lok Sabha polls. 

Rout had been a minister in all the four governments headed by Patnaik and was seen to be close to him before falling out with the BJD president. 

He is the second BJD big shot to switch over to the saffron camp. Recently, Bijayant  Jay Panda joined the BJP.
