A few kilometres away on the other side of Kendrapara town, a white chopper is waiting in the middle of a football field. Its pilots are resting under a banyan tree. People know they are near the poll office of Kendrapara’s BJP candidate, Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda. Panda’s programme sees at least 30 panchayat-level Biju Janata Dal leaders switching over to support him, most high-profile electoral battle this summer.
