Bhubaneswar: Bringing all the speculations to an end, Pratibha Maharathy, wife of late Pradeep Maharathy and mother of Rudra Maharathy has said that she fully supports the candidature of Rudra for Pipili By-polls.

She said, “I am thankful to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for giving importance to our family. There is nothing more happier news for me.
