Sambit Patra is one of the most visible official spokespersons of the BJP. He is eloquent and can be quite persuasive at times when the party asks him to defend any controversy. There are many, even Right Wingers, who criticize him for being too much aggressive, but the fact that he has the ability to dominate any types of discussions with stunning clarity of thought and oratory skill.
Profile of Sambit Patra
Sambit Patra is born in Dhanbad, Jharkhand. He was a brilliant student from schooling days, apart from being a powerful orator. He has done schooling from famous Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Bokaro. He was, in fact, quite close to Chinmayananda Sarswati, the founder of this school. He did MBBS and later MS from SCB Medical College, Cuttak in 2002. He started practice in this hospital and one year later cracked UPSC Combined Medical Services Examination. He was appointed in Hindurao Hospital, Delhi as a Medical Hospital. This is how Dr. Sambit Patra shifted base from Odisha to Delhi. By caste, Dr. Sambit Patra is an Oriya Brahmin.
While working at Hindurao Hospital, he started an NGO named Swaraj in 2006. This NGO was about improving the health and education standards of dalits and adivasis, particularly in the state of Odisha and Chhatisgarh. He used to take whirlwind tours to rural hinterlands and was appalled to see the plight of poor people of India. He campaigned for various legislation and the then UPA government didn’t give any heed to his requests. Frustrated, he joined BJP and continued to work as a surgeon and activist. He resigned from Hindurao Hospital in 2011. He had also fought MCD election on BJP ticket from Kashmere Gate in 2012, but lost the election. However, that didn’t lower his image in the party and he has seen only meteoric rise without any ‘political god father’.
Very soon, BJP recognized his potential and he was inducted into the Central Committee of the Party representing the state of Odisha. He was made spokesperson in 2011 and was instrumental in presenting the views of the BJP on various scams and scandals unleashed by the UPA Government, like 2 G and Coal Allocation Scam, among others.
