People of Odisha will decide my successor: Naveen Patnaik


Bhubaneswar: Amid wide spread discussions over senior BJD leader VK Pandian as his successor, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has said that the former IAS officer is not his successor and people of Odisha will decide his successor. He said this while speaking to the media.

On allegations by the opposition and former BJD leaders that “VK Pandian takes decisions on behalf of CM Patnaik”, Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik says, “…This is ridiculous and I have said it often before, this is an old allegation and it holds no weight.I always chair the cabinet meetings. There has never been a single meeting that I did not preside over.”

Earlier, in a press brief he had said that He is physically fit and ready to serve people of Odisha. If the Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) is concerned about his ill health  has publicly stated that I am a good friend of his, he only needed to pick up the phone, call me, and ask about my health.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Modi a public rally had stated that a probe panel will be constituted to enquire about the health condition of Naveen Patnaik, if BJP is voted to power in Odisha
