Where’s Mittal’s mates?

November 07 2010

Sudhanshu Mittal has been active in politics since his academic days. There was a time when he was one of the most important people in the BJP. He was considered to be extremely close to late Pramod Mahajan. He is also a friend’s friend. Thus he has a long list of friends who were active in several different political parties. But since his name appeared in the CWG scandals and his construction company was raided, his close friends and aides are singing a different tune altogether. “Who Sudhanshu?”, “What Sudhanshu?” they ask. Their tune has changed even more since the scam interrogation has been passed on to the CBI. Chandrababu and Jayalalitha may have called him over the phone and asked him how he was, every big and small BJP leader seems to be avoiding him. Everyone knows Mittal’s proximity to Rajnath Singh and when he met Singh in these troubled times, Rajnath Singh advised him, “I am ill since I returned from New York and can’t come to meet you. You too must not come to see me since there is a danger of infection.” Sudhanshu also called Opposition leader in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj twice and asked her for help saying that the matter should be raised in the Lok Sabha because these raids were politically motivated. But Sushma didn’t give him a promise for the same. The matters have become such that party members such as Kirti Azad and Nishikant Dubey, who would always be seen around him, are not even taking his calls. What else remains to be seen….
