PM Modi wears Odia scarf in Russia, chants Jai Jagannath – N.F Times

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised Odisha’s cultural heritage during an Indian community event in Moscow. Highlighting the BJP’s recent electoral success in Odisha, where they ended Naveen Patnaik’s 24-year rule, Modi wore an Odia scarf and chanted ‘Jai Jagannath’. He also referenced showcasing the Konark Wheel at the G20 Summit.

“Elections were also held in 4 states, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. NDA won in these four states with a clean sweep majority. Odisha has brought about a great revolution and that is why I have also come among you today with an Odia scarf,” said PM Modi while wishing people on the auspicious Rath Yatra.

This time the BJP in Odisha has formed a government with a majority and dethroned the BJD government led by Naveen Patnaik who was in power in the state for 24 years.

Earlier during the G20 Summit held last year, PM Minister Narendra Modi showcased the Konark Wheel from the Sun Temple in Odisha to the world. A replica of the Konark Wheel was used as the backdrop of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s welcome handshake with G20 leaders at the summit venue in Delhi.
