Lok Sabha elections have also been voted for the Odisha Assembly, in which the ruling BJD has won a narrow victory. Naveen Patnaik is once again going to be the Chief Minister of the state. BJD president Naveen Patnaik is going to take oath as the Chief Minister of Odisha on Wednesday, May 29. He has also invited the caretaker Prime Minister Narendra Modi for this special occasion.
In the 146-member assembly, BJD got 112 seats. BJD spokesman Pratap Dev told that a formal invitation had been sent to the Prime Minister’s Office. Apart from this, all political parties, all elected MPs and MLAs in the state have been invited in the swearing-in ceremony.
He told that the industrialists who participated in the Make in Odisha Conclave have also been invited.
This invitation of Naveen Patnaik to PM Modi is essential. Before the results of the Lok Sabha elections on May 23, it was estimated that if the BJP could not get enough numbers to form the government, then the BJD could be its help. PM Modi himself went on a state tour after the devastation caused by the fierce storm that hit Odisha. There is less sarcasm between the two leaders. In such a situation, Naveen Patnaik has tried to give PM Modi a big message once again by calling him in his oath taking.
