Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik will not be a part of Holi celebrations in the state tomorrow owing to cold.
“I wish everyone a very happy Holi tomorrow. I will not be playing as I have a cold,” Patnaik said speaking to reporters at his residence Naveen Nivas here today.
The CM had not celebrated Holi in 2016 too due to the drought situation in the state at that time.
The BJD supremo was also away from Holi celebrations in 2014 due to cyclone Phailin which had claimed 21 lives in 2013.
