NALINI MOHANTY WOULD HAVE CELEBRATED HIS 69TH BIRTHDAY ON 20TH JANUARY 2018

 

Prasanta Patnaik 

 

Nalini was a brother to me, Born on January 20, 1949, Nalini started his political career as a student leader in 1969. He became an MLA in 1977 when he was elected from Rajnagar as a Janata Party candidate. Three years later, he retained the seat as a Lok Dal nominee, only to repeat his feat in 1985 as a Janata Party candidate. He represented the constituency seven times on the trot from 1977 till 2009. This includes twice as Janata Dal, once as Biju Janata Dal and once as Congress candidate.

 

Very strangely Naveen Patnaik dropped him from his council of ministers on charges of seeing "shadow of corruption".But failed to establish the allegations against him.

 

Nalini was most trusted and devoted youth leader who was very close to him like Bijoy Mohapatra .

 

Nalini had to join the Congress and tasted defeat for the first time in 2009 when BJD's Alekh Jena beat him.

 

Mohanty, who contributed a lot towards the development of Kendrapada district, particularly Rajnagar assembly segment, served as a minister from 1990 to 1995 in the Biju Patnaik government and from 2000 to mid-2001 in the Naveen Patnaik ministry. He looked after the works, housing and parliamentary affairs during his tenure. During his stint as minister, he constructed seven bridges in Rajnagar to improve connectivity. He is also credited for declaration of Bhitarknika as a national park in 1994. In July, 2001,

 

After Nalini his only son Ansuman an young engineer joined Congress and was elected from Rajnagar with a good margin defeating the BJD and BJP candidates.
