Nayagarh: No national party will get majority mark to form govt at the Centre this time. We (BJD) can play a major role. It’s a golden opportunity for us. BJD will win 21 Lok Sabha seats from Odisha: BJD president & CM Naveen Patnaik during an election rally at Nayagarh.
BJD supremo and Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik hits campaign trail from #Nayagarh; despite getting maximum revenue from railways & coal, BJP govt at the Centre has neglected the State, says Naveen adding that State BJP leaders have failed to rake up the issue before their high command.
CM Naveen Patnaik’s statements clearly show BJD’s despair as the party is making contradictory statements on the number of seats it will win in Odisha, says BJP spokesperson Golak Mohapatra .
While backing BJD supremo & CM Naveen Patnaik’s assessment of ‘Hung Parliament’ in 2019, PCC chief Niranjan Patnaik says, ‘As Congress has forged alliance with several parties, there will be a hung government at Centre. We are confident that PM Modi-led govt’s days are numbered.’
