Fearing the loss of seats in the Hindi speaking states this time PM Modi and other heavyweight leaders of BJP had targeted Odisha and West Bengal. Even Modi came up with the ‘double engine’ slogan where he asked voters of Odisha to support BJP both in the Lok Sabha election and Assembly election.
However, Navin Patnaik’s popular schemes became instrumental to keep his popularity intact among people. As a result, the craze for the name ‘Naveen Patnaik’ reigned across the state finally bringing a landslide victory for Biju Janata Dal. The wave was so strong that the same strongly forbade ‘Modi Hawa’ to flow in the state.
