Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik would not celebrate his birthday on Sunday as a mark of respect to the martyr jawans who laid down their lives fighting against terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.
“The Chief Minister has decided not to celebrate his birthday tomorrow,” a communication received from the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said. Patnaik has also requested his well wishers and ruling BJD workers and leaders not to organise any celebration tomorrow.
They were further requested not to visit Navin Niwas to greet him on the occasion, it said. Patnaik did not celebrate his birthday in 2015 as well following a mishap where 11 students were injured due to bursting of a gas balloon cylinder in a party procession.
