Bhubaneswar: An Odia biography of Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik was unveiled by State Assembly Speaker Surya Narayan Patro at his official chamber on Saturday.
The book titled "Odisha Rajnitira Niraba Sadhaka - Naveen Patnaik" starts with the horoscope of Patnaik and gradually covers his life, personality, works and achievements.
Authored by Pandit Daitari Mohapatra, the 184 pages book has been published by Kalinga Samaj Publication, Bhubaneswar.
After unveiling the book, Patro said that Naveen Patnaik is not a politician but a statesman. It was he who thought of evacuating people to safety ahead of cyclones, thereby reducing the number of casualty.
Patro said that such steps have never touched the mind of any politician in State prior to that and books in regard have been penned down by some writers earlier.
