There are no permanent friends and no permanent enemies, is one of the most cynical formulations of Indian politics. As if to prove the adage, the BJP’s chief minister hopeful, B.S. Yediyurappa, calls on Daivajna K.N. Somayaji at the Shankar Mutt in Bangalore on Wednesday. The vaastu “expert” had come under fire from BJP workers last November after his prediction that Yediyurappa would never become CM fell flat. But clearly Yediyurappa is more forgiving.
