Leader of Opposition Jaynarayan Mishra of the BJP, said, "The CM should give 10 out of 10 to the PM for his overall performance. However, I would like to give zero to Patnaik for his all-round failure. PM's governance is corruption-free, while the Patnaik government is neck-deep in corruption."

Congress MLA Taraprasad Bahinipati said he would give a "big zero" to both the state and the central governments.

"Both have done nothing for the people," he alleged.

BJD MLA Sashi Bhusan Behera, on the other hand, said Patnaik "does not need rating from people like Mishra and Bahinipati".

"The people of Odisha have awarded full marks to Patnaik by making him the CM for five consecutive terms," Behera added.
