Piyush Bares Fangs

July 16 2018

The ‘Bharata of Kali Yug’, finance minister-in-charge Piyush Goyal, who once said he runs the Finance Ministry with guru Arun Jaitley’s slippers on the throne, much in the Ramayana style, seems to be changing fast. Just recently, he was supposed to address the foundation day of NABARD in Mumbai, but cancelled the appointment at the very last moment, citing heavy workload in Delhi. Perplexed NABARD officials somehow managed to get the consent of minister-without-portfolio, Jaitley, to address the meet via video conferencing. Hearing this, Goyal called all the journalists covering the finance ministry to his Rail Bhavan office for ‘some discussion’ where all he did was small talk for the duration of Jaitley’s speech. That Goyal is changing is also evident from the fact that now he has even started working from the North Block headquarters of the finance ministry, and though the name plate outside on the door has some other name, inside, it is Goyal whose writ runs large.
