Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today praised the Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre.
“The government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Centre has done well with regard to our foreign policy. The Prime Minister has done many things to eradicate corruption. He is trying his best to serve the people of India. The government at the Centre deserves 8 out of 10,” said Patnaik while participating in an event of an English daily in Odisha capital here today.
Patnaik also said that the Odisha government under his leadership has been maintaining a cordial relation with the Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre to expedite developmental works in the state.

Patnaik also expressed his happiness over the passage of Women’s Reservation Bill in the Parliament recently.
