To remember or not to remember

July 14 2019

Arun jaitley is credited with making Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman a stalwart in saffron politics. So the day new Finance Minister took office and reached the room, she folded her hands in Namaste to greet her guru Arun Jaitley’s chair and sat on a nearby sofa. It was when an officer close to Jaitley requested her to sit on the chair, Sitharaman reluctantly sat on it. But when she gave her speech in Parliament as Finance Minister, there was no mention of Jaitley. Not only the Finance Minister, around forty MPs took part in the discussion on budget of which several of BJP MPs also took part but only Naresh Gujral of Shiromani Akali Dal remembered his close friend Jaitley and said that he would like to remember Jaitley who was the Finance Minister in the first term and worked to bring the economy back on track. At least jaitley’s relevance is still maintained in the supporting parties, if not with his own party leaders.
