His statement came after several western Odisha leaders requested Patnaik to fight the Assembly elections from their region.
Patnaik has been representing Ganjam's Hinjlicut Assembly constituency since last four times.
With the opposition Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) focusing to gain maximum seats in the western part of the state, the ruling party is trying to put a stopper on the opposition's game plan.
"It will be a matter of pride for us if Naveen Patnaik represents the western Odisha. The Chief Minister will decide which assembly seat he wants to contest from in the western Odisha," said Singh Deo.
He said the BJD will perform better this time in the elections.
Elections will be held for 21 Lok Sabha and 147 Assembly seats in Odisha simultaneously in four phases.
