Notably, Naveen had urged his supporters, well-wishers, and BJD activists not to visit his residence, Naveen Nivas on his birthday. “I am always indebted to the love and good wishes of the people of Odisha,” he said.
Patnaik had stated that he will be leaving for Hyderabad on Sunday for the ‘Make In Odisha’ program.
It is pertinent to mention here that, this will be the fifth consecutive year the BJD supremo will give his birthday celebrations a miss.
He had chosen not to celebrate his birthday last year and 2020 due to the Covid situation and in 2018, and 2019 owing to cyclones Titli and Fani.
