Rajnath extended his good wishes to Patnaik, referring to him as ‘Nabeen Babu’.

“Congratulations to Shri Naveen Patnaik on becoming the Odisha Chief Minister for the fourth time. I extend my good wishes to Nabeen Babu,” Rajnath tweeted on Wednesday.

Rajnath also congratulated Pawan Kumar Chamling for becoming the Chief Minister of Sikkim for a record fifth time.

“Shri Pawan Kumar Chamling was sworn in as Sikkim Chief Minister today for the fifth time. Congratulations and good wishes to him,” Rajnath said.

Earlier, there were whispers in the media circle that Patnaik might support the BJP-led NDA at the Centre if it would have fallen short of numbers to form the government.

However, his support was not required since the NDA got a clear majority.
