Delhi CM Arvind Kejjriwal Misspells Odisha As ‘Orissa’, Triggers Tweet Storm

Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted on Thursday to express gratitude to his Odisha counterpart Naveen Patnaik for assuring all help in facilitating the lifting of Delhi’s quota of oxygen from the state.

While people of Odisha have appreciated this gesture of Kejriwal, misspelling the state’s name has not gone down well with many.

“Received a call from Shri Naveen Patnaik ji. He has assured complete support to Delhi in facilitating lifting of Delhi’s quota of oxygen from Orissa. He has put a special officer on the job. Thank you so much, sir. Delhi is indeed grateful,” the tweet read.

Here are some reactions to the Delhi CM’s tweet.

“Since 2011… it’s been 10 years … Odisha changed its name from Orissa to Odisha but except inside Odisha have never seen its correct pronunciation or spelling,” wrote a Twitter user.

However, some influencer handles were critical about Odia’s obsession with spelling while quite a few extolled Naveen for his statesmanlike role.
