New Delhi: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today said he did not harbour any ambition of becoming the Prime Minister after the Lok Sabha elections. “I have no ambition of becoming the Prime Minister.
I have the blessings of the people of Odisha, and will like to serve the state,” Patnaik told reporters after inaugurating the Odisha Sadan at Dwarka Sector 16-B here. Patnaik's statement comes hours after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi launched his party's election campaign in Odisha. Gandhi at a public meeting in Cuttack district targeted the ruling BJD, and dubbed it as “corrupt” and siding with mining mafia.
BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is also scheduled to address a public meeting in Bhubaneswar on Tuesday.
