Odisha Chief Minister said that the party has no thoughts on the Presidential election

New Delhi:29/3/22: Odisha Chief Minister and Biju Janata Dal (BJD) supremo Naveen Patnaik, who is currently on a three-day visit to New Delhi, today said that the party has no thoughts on the Presidential election for the moment.

“There is still time for the Presidential elections… so no thoughts on that for the moment,” he said

Patnaik’s reply came when he was asked by reporters as to which side the BJD would support for the Presidential election. Worth mentioning, the Presidential election is due in July, this year.

On being asked about West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC chief Mamata Banerjee’s letter to Opposition leaders and CMs of non-BJP ruled states for the formation of an anti-BJP Opposition front, Patnaik said he has not received the letter yet.

“We stand for development and welfare of our state. That’s what our party stands for,” he added.

Patnaik today reached the Parliament and met BJD MPs at the party’s parliamentary office. Yesterday, he had reached the national capital and attended a sports award function, where he felicitated the women’s hockey team.

The CM is also likely to visit some Union Ministers to discuss matters pertaining to the state’s interests.
