It is becoming increasingly clear that local police did their best to botch up the probe into the 23-year-old’s murder from the very beginning.
Though there has been no confirmation from Majhi, who was the MP from Nabarangpur from 2009-14, sources close to him say he is set to join the BJD.
The police arrested the prime accused Gobinda Sahu, who had escaped from the police barrack in Titliagarh, from a sugarcane field in Budhipadar village on Tuesday evening.
Ever since he contested the bypolls to the Aska parliamentary seat, which had fallen vacant after the demise of his father Biju Patnaik, in 1997, the BJD supremo has always trounced his rivals.
The scheme is expected to be a ‘game changer’ for the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) in the coming panchayat elections.
The BJD’s move comes barely three days after a delegation of the party MPs met Union Home Minister Amit Shah and sought a legislation to raise quota for OBCs in the state.

Describing Anubhav as a ‘professional drinker’, Barsha has said he would frequently bring his friends into his bed room and carouse till the wee hours.
It is the overwhelming vote of the women of Odisha that has ensured Naveen Patnaik won election after election in the state
It has also led to a strange role reversal where the ‘secular’ BJD is supposedly playing the religious card while the BJP is left crying foul!
