Product Description

Book Title: Naveen Patnaik   

Authors: Ruben Banerjee

After the death of the beloved Odia politician Biju Patnaik in 1997, his socialite son Naveen stepped forward to contest the by-election to the Lok Sabha seat that lay empty after his father’s death. Earlier, Naveen ran a boutique in Delhi, had never contested an election before or held public office. He spoke no Odia and was more at home in the cocktail circuit of Lutyens’ Delhi and with his circle of international jet-setting friends.

Party men viewed Naveen only as a magnet for attracting voters sympathetic to Biju, not as a genuine politician or leader. But Naveen shocked his sceptics by winning every single election he contested. He’s been elected to the Lok Sabha three times and as chief minister of Odisha four times. Even the Modi wave of 2014 didn’t make a dent in Naveen’s numbers.

He not only has an abiding connect with his voters but he also proved himself a shrewd and Machiavellian operator by wresting absolute control of his party from the patriarchs of his father’s days and other potential rivals.
