Sharad Pawar-led NCP on Sunday extended support of his party's two MLAs to the Naveen Patnaik ministry in Orissa, which was reduced to a minority after the BJP pulled out of the alliance.

"The MLAs of Nationalist Congress Party in Orissa will support the BJD Government headed by Patnaik," NCP spokesperson DP Tripathi said in a statement.

Patnaik has claimed in Bhubaneshwar that he has a majority in the 147-member assembly with the support of more than 74 MLAs.
