Lauding the Presidential candidate of NDA, Mr.Patnaik said Mr. Kovind’s journey from humble beginnings in a village in Northern Part of the Country to being a candidate for the highest office in India is a true reflection of the transition that Modern India has undergone.

Mr.Patnaik said what sets Mr.Kovind apart is his hard work, determination and his commitment to the cause of the oppressed and the downtrodden

Chief Minister also said, “I am sure Sir, the path you have treaded so far makes you supremely qualified to hold the highest office of the land and protect the sublime values enshrined in our Constitution.”
Mr.Patnaik said, Odisha's journey has been very similar. Having faith in and upholding the principles of democracy, secularism and inclusive growth, Odisha has come a long way.
BJD Boss said the regional party has as its core, the values of empowerment of tribals, scheduled caste, women, children, farmers and youth leading to a progressive and prosperous Odisha.
Mr.Kovind met ruling BJD MLAs and MPs at Odisha Assembly and had lunch with Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik during his one-day visit here.
