BJP is sinking fast, says Naveen Patnaik

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Thursday said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is sinking fast in the country.

"The BJP is sinking quite fast," Patnaik told reporters here, citing the defeat of the BJP in the by-poll to two parliamentary seats in Uttar Pradesh.

The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) supremo also did not rule out of aligning with anti-BJP coalition in future.

"We haven't thought of any alliance for the time being," he said.

While the BJP put up an impressive show in the panchayat polls held last year, the ruling BJD put the BJP on mat in the recently held by-poll for the Bijepur assembly constituency.
