With Odisha all set to enter the last phase of the crucial 2024 elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday claimed that the fate of the state is about to change. In an exclusive interview to ANI, the Prime Minister also revealed the reason behind risking the ‘bonhomie’ with Odisha CM and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik.

On his terms with CM Naveen Patnaik, PM Modi said, "In a democracy we have good terms with all leaders of political parties. In a democracy, we do not have enmity. Now the question was whether I should maintain my relations or worry about the fate of Odisha. Hence, I chose to devote myself to the bright future of Odisha even if have to sacrifice my relations for that; I will do it and after the elections, I will convince everyone that I have no enmity with anyone."

“I have said that the expiry date of the current Odisha government is June 4 and on June 10, the BJP CM will take oath in Odisha,” said PM Modi.

According to PM Modi, there has been no progress in Odisha for the last 25 years and the biggest concern is that there is a group that has taken over the entire system of Odisha; it seems that the entire system has been held hostage. If Odisha comes out of the bondage, the state will flourish, he told ANI.

“It is a question of Odisha's Asmita. Odisha has abundance of natural resources; it is sad to see poor people in such a prosperous state. Odisha is among the prosperous states of India. It has so much natural wealth and Odisha is also among the states of poor people of India, so the government is responsible for this; and the people of Odisha should get their rights and its pride,” PM Modi added.
