Shuklaji’s strong point: PR

November 06 2011

The profile of Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Shukla includes assisting and ensuring the Rajya Sabha runs smoothly. But he is also one of those with good public relations. So the Congress has asked him to also lobby with Opposition leaders from the Lok Sabha as well. So this Diwali, he bought gifts by the dozen and arrived at homes of Opposition leaders. Not just the BSP, SP and the BJP, he even went to the homes of Lalu Prasad and Sharad Yadav. BJP’s Arun Jaitley and CPM’s Sitaram Yechury are some of his good friends and because they keep meeting Shukla ji, and because Jaitley likes to follow and play games other than politics just like Shukla ji, they both have a great tuning. But Shukla ji couldn’t meet Opposition leader in the house Sushma Swaraj, although he asked her office twice for an appointment, but Sushma’s office told him in plain words, “Madam is not celebrating Diwali this time, because her brother died only a few months ago. “
