Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today took a jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), a day after the by-poll results were declared where the ruling dispensation suffered shocking defeat.

Patnaik said: “The BJP is sinking… sinking quite fast,” in his reaction to media persons posing queries about the recent resurgence of the saffron party in several states.

The by-election to Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats came as a huge blow for the Yogi Adityanath-ruled BJP in the state. Both the seats were pocketed by Samajwadi Party by a massive margin.

Patnaik in his reaction to posers on aligning with anti-BJP coalition said, “We haven’t thought of any alliance for the time being. There are no such thoughts.”

Worth mentioning, the BJP had also lost the recently-concluded Bijepur by-election by a mammoth margin where the BJD had fielded Rita Sahu – the widow of Congress MLA Subal Sahu.
