Bhubaneswar: Naveen Patnaik will be sworn in as Chief Minister for a fifth time on May 29, this time in an open public ground. Odisha Governor Ganeshi Lal on Sunday invited the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) president to form the next government in the state on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, Patnaik, whose party swept the elections winning 112 of the 146 constituencies, was re-elected as the BJD legislature party's leader. By the end of this coming term - his fifth consecutive one - Patnaik would be the longest serving CM India has ever seen.

The 72-year-old, who has been the party's CM face from it's inception, addressing his new legislators had said politics wasn't difficult as long as you prioritised people's welfare.

“People ask me often what is the secret of BJD’s continuous success and I always tell them these two points-keep people in focus and work for people,” he said.

"Always remember to lead a simple life. When you are simple people are close to you,” he added reminding his legislators to work hard to honour the faith the people had bestowed on them.

Patnaik also met his twelve successful Lok Sabha members, five of them women among the seven he had nominated as his commitment to 30 per cent reservation for women in Parliament.
