Saffron dreams take a beating, all thanks to Mukhtar

April 23 2011

“Kya tej jagmagati thi quatil ke haath mein/ ab uski aasteen mein to khanjar bhi na raha…” Women’s blush and red lipsticks remind him of the terrorism in J&K. When he became the information and broadcasting minister in the NDA government in 1988, he gave his house in Allahabad to his own ministry’s “Song and drama division” at the quoted price. When he became the party spokesperson, he was caught consuming alcohol in the party headquarters on 11, Ashok Road. On Advani’s insistence, he was removed from the post, he lost the Lok Sabha elections from Rampur dismally, and currently he calls himself the party’s spokesperson, but isn’t. But if journalists covering the BJP beat are to be believed, there is no one better than him when it comes to “off the record” quips, and is also called the party’s “Off the record twitter”. This Friday, party President Nitin Gadkari ran him down, but doesn’t look like Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi is going to mend his ways anytime soon. What to do: “Wo bhi manzilon ki baatein kartey hain, jinka apna pata nahi hota.”
