Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has once again emerged as the most loved politician in Odisha. He has been adjudged the best performing Chief Minister at the state-level in India Today’s ‘Mood of the Nation’ (MOTN) January 2021 poll. The survey shows that 51 per cent respondents from Odisha rated him as the best performing chief minister.
