Bhubaneswar: BJD supremo-cum-Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik paid floral tribute to former BJD leader Damodar Rout’s wife Snehalata Mohapatra following her demise today.

Naveen personally went to Dama Babu’s residence here and laid a wreath on the mortal remains as a mark of last respect.

He even offered his condolences on the sombre occasion and consoled the bereft family.

Naveen talked to Dama Babu for a while and left the place.

Soon after the Chief Minister arrived at the threshold of the bereft house, Damodar Rout’s only son Sambit Routray received and welcomed him inside.

Notably, Damodar Rout was last year ousted from BJD for his alleged anti-party activities and he on March 14 joined BJP at its New Delhi office.
