Savitri Era Party congratulates BJD

[A Patnaik doosra for Advani The Statesman
K Ravi BHUBANESWAR, March 8: Biju Janata Dal president Mr Naveen Patnaik, considered to be one of the must trusted allies of the BJP, bowled what can best be described in cricketing parlance as a Muralidharan 'smiling assassin' doosra to Mr Advani, and politically stumped the seasoned politician.Having kept the BJP guessing till the very last, the BJD leader pulled off a coup yesterday... The collapse of the long standing BJD-BJP alliance is a major blow to Mr LK Advani who had taken on himself the responsibility of negotiating with Mr Patnaik. Rather than dispatching senior leaders for the seat-sharing talks, Mr Advani had deputed a personal emissary, Mr Chandan Mitra, who, as is evident from the turn of events, was easily taken for a ride by Mr Patnaik. Mr Advani had immense faith on Mr Patnaik and he failed to read the situation, said a BJP leader here. The BJD meanwhile insists that it was a clear case of electoral arithmetic.
