Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik predicts that no national party will get a clear majority in Lok Sabha election 2019.
While addressing a rally, Mr Patnaik said that Odisha remains neglected by the centre at every front. He added, Biju Janata Dal (BJD) will play an important role in the formation of the next government at the Centre
Mr Patnaik stated that the BJD will register major win in ensuing Lok Sabha polls and will play a key role in formation of government at the Centre.
“Centre supports Andhra Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in Polavaram and Mahanadi cases. They are sidelining the interests of Odisha,” he said.
Mr Patnaik also targeted the BJP-lead Central Government on Special Category Status issue and added, “We have been fighting for Special Category Status to Odisha.
It was promised by the BJP during the 2014 Lok Sabha election. After forming government at Centre, BJP has forgotten it,” he added.
