Bhubaneswar: BJD president and Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik on Thursday claimed trends from the three phases of polling held so far indicate no national party will get the required number to form the govt at the Centre.
Patnaik’s comment comes against the backdrop of PM Modi stating at an election meeting in Balasore on April 23, that the BJP was certain to form govt at the Centre on the basis of feedback received from the three phases of polling.
“Now, after the three phases of polling, it is clear that no national party will be able to form government on their own,” the CM said, at a series of election rallies in Mayurbhanj district.
