Despite 30-odd losses, Syambabu Subudhi to contest from 2 Lok Sabha seats in Odisha
Berhampur: Despite contesting in over 30 different elections and losing all of them, Dr K Syambabu Subudhi from Odisha’s Berhampur remained unfazed by repeated defeats.
The 83-year-old homeopathic doctor has filed his nomination as an independent candidate from both Aska and Berhampur Lok Sabha seats for the upcoming elections.
“I first contested in 1962 and have contested in different elections including Lok Sabha and Odisha Assembly polls. I have received proposals from various political parties but always contested as an Independent candidate,” Subudhi was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Earlier, Subudhi had fought against political heavyweights like former Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao, former Chief Ministers of Odisha Janaki Ballav Patnaik and Biju Patnaik, and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.
