New Delhi, Mar 6: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today said that Congress party's poor showing in the assembly elections was due to its “non-performance, false promises and reputation for corruption”.
“You can see from the results today of the various states that the Congress party has failed very badly. This is because of non-performance and making false promises, also everyone knows of their reputation for corruption,” Patnaik told reporters in his reaction on the polls results after meeting Food Minister K V Thomas here.
