Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s followers on the microblogging site Twitter have crossed five lakh, further cementing his position as one of the most followed Indian politicians on the social media platforms. Naveen has the highest number of followers among politicians in Odisha followed by his party’s Kendrapara MP Baijayant Panda with 2.70 lakh who had joined Twitter on July 07, 2011. The CM, once known for his inaccessible image, has been actively using the micro-blogging site to connect with people for sometime now, and especially during launching of various socio-welfare schemes. Of late, Patnaik was seen congratulating Odia people who are bringing glory to their state by excelling in different fields. On Sunday, the CM congratulated Odia para athlete Jayanti Behera on clinching Gold for India in the 400mts event at the World Junior Para Athletic Championships held at Nottwil, Switzerland. Notably, Patnaik had joined the microblogging site on September 09, 2015 with @Naveen_Odisha handle and “Jai Jagannath…” was his first tweet. The Odisha Sun Times Bureau : 6th. Aug,17
