**Bhubaneswar: ** Close on the heels of twitterati war between BJD MPs Tathagath Satpathy and Baijayant Panda followed by Panda’s op-ed in the premier Odia daily ‘The Samaja’ washing ruling BJD’s dirty linen in public coupled with his further volleys of tweets sparking speculations over an imminent split in BJD, eminent journalist Rajdeep Sardesai’s latest tweet adds credence to the probable political development in Odisha.
Sardesai, in his official twitter handle @sardesairajdeep, has tweeted:
“After Goa, Odisha next target on BJP radar: attempt to split BJD ahead of BJP natl exec in Bhubaneshwar next month! Is BJP the new Cong?”
Being well-known in both the media and political circles for his expertise in the nitty-gritty of Indian politics, such a tweet corroborates that Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik-led Biju Janata Dal (BJD)’s split is on cards.
