Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik says he will not celebrate his birthday (Oct 16) in view of damages caused by cyclone Titli & subsequent flood. CM wishes people on Durga Puja.
The Chief Minister will not receive birthday greetings tomorrow. So well-wishers are requested not to throng Naveen Niwas tomorrow to greet him,” a statement issued by the CMO stated.
In his two decades of political life, the CM has always kept his birthday celebration a low-key affair. Earlier, in 2013 and 2014, Patnaik had not celebrated his birthday to express his solidarity with the people then affected by cyclones Phailin and Hudhud.
