The 45-year-old spokesperson has been a regular on TV debates, representing the party. In last year's Lok Sabha elections, he had fought from the Puri constituency, but was defeated by the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) candidate Pinaki Misra.

India has recorded over 1.58 lakh cases of COVID-19 so far. According to the Health Ministry data, 4,531 people have died, while 67,691 patients have been cured or discharged.
