New Delhi: Odisha Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik today remained non-committal on supporting NDA in government formation at the Centre. “No talks at all.
We have not discussed anything. We have not thought of it yet. Let us wait till the results,” he said.
Patnaik's comment come after speculation about talks between BJP and BJD for their possible support to the NDA if it forms the government at the Centre.
BJD was an partner of NDA but parted ways just before the 2004 Lok Sabha polls.
A senior BJD leader had yesterday indicated conditional support to NDA in government formation at the Centre.
“Keeping in view the opinion of the whole country and the state's interest, there should be no problem in providing conditional support to NDA to form government at the Centre,” BJD's chief whip Pravat Tripathy had said.
