Q1: What attracted you to the fact that you have done so many notable works as a renowned architect and politician, and also that you have worked on many programs with renowned architect Raghunath Mohapatra?
Good question, I have done many programs and projects , with architect Raghunath Mohapatra. When the second Konark project started, he took me for that project to be a part of it . I have been working in architecture for 23 years. My father wanted me to become an architect. After studying, I went to Singapore for higher education and have been working in the field of architecture

He has been honored with Padma Vibhushan. He has done a lot of good work. He asked me to work on the corner project in Gote program. So he took 300 acres of land in Chandanpur. The drawing work was done and the permission was pending. I liked the Konark chakra he did . We have done many projects with him, and he also wanted to do a solar museum

A man always wants to make a beautiful house, that’s why he wants help, how his house will be built beautifully is the job of an architect, we have done many projects, institutional, medical, residential, many projects like this which are next. At the time, the projects felt like it was as if our sons, daughters so we do those projects very carefully and beautifully
Q4: As an architect, how do you face challenges in this particular field?
I was born in Khadpada and came from a political family. My father served as the block chairman for a considerable amount of time and also served as president of the Central Cooperative, a district councillor, and as a candidate in two elections. There are other issues, including the lack of a proper medical facility and the fact that many more young people will work for just Rs5,000 or 6,000 per year. I am aware of the issues facing farmers, khatikhis, and other labourers. As an architect, I realised the difficulties after seeing all of these issues and became more motivated to work.
Q5: A question arises in many minds, how could you contest against a prominent politician of Odisha in the last election without being a member of any party?
In the last 2019 election, I fought against Soumya Ranjan Patnaik , Soumya Ranjan Patnaik can be given the title of Bhishma in Odisha politics and there were many political warriors like Drona, Karn with him, but I fought as his beloved disciple Arjuna son Abhimanyu, But in the upcoming 2024 election. I will definitely fight the election like Arjun .
Q6 : Has Soumya Ranjan Patnaik contributed to growth in the previous fifteen years? Can you elaborate on the situation?
Nothing has been done as much as the residents of Khudpada wanted, but many things could have been done if a man like him had wanted to.
