Bhubaneswar: Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik might have tactfully deflected the TMC supremo Mamata Banejee’s overteur for a non-BJP and non-Congress Third Front. But, the romance between their leaders is now talk of the town.

A BJD veteran MP and a women MP of TMC were spotted recently at Gopalpur beach in Odisha. The couple in shorts caressed the serene water of the sea known for its gentleness for hours.

The BJD MP, known for his skill in getting things done for the Party at Delhi, and the TMC MP, known for her penchant for classy Louis Vuitton bag, were staying in a sea front posh hotel. It may be a coincidence that they had checked into two adjacent luxury suites.

At a time when the nation is blissfully watching the torrid romance of AAP minister Raghav Chadha and film actress Parineeti Chopra, is some thing cooking up in Gopalpur in Odisha too?
