Cockroach sometimes dares to be a bird:Bhartruhari Mahtab

Cuttack:8/5/17;  Cuttack-Barabati MLA Debashish Samantray against his allegedly scathy columns in Odia newspapers, Cuttack MP (BJD) Bhartruhari Mahtab too retorted dubbing his critics as ‘cockroach’ and ‘monsoon insects with foul odour’.

“When the party is fielding us, we’re winning for the party, be it the MP candidate or MLA candidate,” the Cuttack MP sharply reacted to Cuttack-Barabati MLA’s earlier jibe that Cuttack MP Bhartruhari Mahtab has been winning for the five consecutive times only due to the BJD party, grassroots level workers and above all owing to the image of BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik.

On being asked to whom the simile ‘monsoon insects with foul odour’ was pointed at, Mahtab further added the metaphor of proverbial ‘cockroach sometimes dares to be a bird’ when some audacious people aims at flying high despite sans the potential.

He, however, denied having pointed his finger at any one of the BJD leaders.
