Hitting back at Shah for dubbing the BJD government as a "fused transformer" which should be replaced, Patnaik said, "We should await the results of the 2019 elections."
"It (the results) will decide which government will be thrown out of power and which government will stay," added the Biju Janata Dal supremo.
"I understand he said that my government is a fused transformer. He will wait and see who is the fused transformer and who is the transformer of Odisha," he said further.
The chief minister was reacting to the remarks made by Shah at a BJP tribal convention in Puri where the saffron party chief dubbed the BJD government as a "fused transformer" and asked the people to throw it away.
Shah also described the BJD as a 'B' team of Congress and said both the parties were like two sides of the same coin which failed to bring development in Odisha.
