Odisha’s CM Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday reacted to Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma’s remarks after a video showing Biju Janta Dal (BJD) leader VK Pandian hiding his shivering hand went viral.

In a short video clip, Odisha CM accused the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) of making issues out of non-issues, warning that it will not work. Meanwhile, he also pounded the same hand on the podium, giving a symbolic reply to the saffron party.?

He said, “I believe the BJP, which is known to make non-issues into issues, are discussing my hands. This will certainly not work."

What CM Himanta said??

Patnaik’s statement comes after Himanta shared the viral video on X earlier in the day and accused VK Pandian of even controlling the hand movements of Patnaik.?

CM Himanta wrote, “This is a deeply distressing video. Shri VK Pandian ji is even controlling the hand movements of Shri Naveen Babu. I shudder to imagine the level of control a retired ex-bureaucrat from Tamil Nadu is currently exercising over the future of Odisha! BJP is determined is give back the reins of Odisha to the people of the State.”

Notably, a video of Naveen Patnaik went viral on Tuesday, in which CM Patnaik was addressing a public meeting. The video shows Pandian holding the mic when Patnaik’s hand resting on the podium starts shivering. Pandian then abruptly grabbed his hand and hid it.

The video triggered a wave of speculations regarding Patnaik’s health condition.?
