Bhubaneswar, May 20:  Naveen Patnaik, the current Chief Minister of Odisha, is indeed eyeing a historic sixth consecutive term in office. 

Naveen Patnaik has been at the helm of Odisha since March 2000, making him the longest-serving chief minister in the state’s history.

If re-elected, he will surpass Sikkim’s former Chief Minister Pawan Chamling's  record of becomimg the country’s longest-serving CM.

His commitment to clean governance and accountability has endeared him to the people of Odisha.

Despite facing challenges, including natural disasters like supercyclones, Patnaik’s unchallenged rule continues to resonate with voters.

Many view him as a father figure symbolizing stability and progress in the state.

His initiatives, such as the Jagannath Temple Parikrama project, instill pride in Odias.

The Biju Janata Dal (BJD)'s manifesto outlines a comprehensive development plan across various sectors.

Notably, the BJD has promised zero electricity bills for households using up to 100 units and a 50% subsidy for those consuming 100 to 150 units.

Extending the BSKY scheme to cover more people, including government employees, is another advantage for the BJD.

Additionally, providing pensions to Mission Shakti's Women Self-Help Groups could garner female voters’ support.

With these factors in play, Naveen Patnaik aims to etch his name in India’s political history by securing a sixth term as Odisha’s Chief Minister
