Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik is a fitness enthusiast. He is healthy and loves to jog, run on the treadmill, lift light weights and squat regularly.
This might sound strange, but it’s a fact about this immensely popular yet self-effacing leader.
A video shot two days back at Naveen Nivas revealed an untold side of 72-year-old CM who is seeking a fifth term in office. The video shows Naveen up on his fitness regime amidst the serene courtyard and living room of his residence, with all ease.
The short clip which has already gone viral on social media, has come as a big blow to Naveen’s critics and a section of the opposition, who have been raising unfound doubts on the health of the Chief Minister.
At the end of the video Naveen quips with an elan - "Getting ready to fight for the people of Odisha."
