“Due to the blessings of Lord Jagannath, the BJP has achieved a majority in Odisha and is going to form the government in the State. I would like to thank the 4.5 crore Odias who decided to vote for a change and bring the BJP to power in Odisha. The BJP will honour the trust that the people of Odisha have shown,” said CM-designate of Odisha, Mohan Charan Majhi after being elected as the BJP Legislative party leader in the state assembly.

In response to media queries, Mohan Majhi’s elder son gave a very nice response. He said – “After knowing that my father is the Chief Minister, roses are blooming in my mind. I feel very happy and speechless.”

Similarly, Majhi’s younger son Krishna, who studies in Kendriya Vidyalaya, said that he was overwhelmed to know that his father is the Chief Minister and said that his friends are asking for a party. “I will give them a party when the school reopens,” he said.

Similarly, Majhi’s wife Priyanka Majhi said, “I thought he would be a minister but never thought he would be named Chief Minister…I feel very happy…”
