The thorny path for Shah

March 18 2012

Despite several attempts by Mukesh Ambani, Viren J Shah’s son Rajesh Shah was unable to get a seat to the Rajya Sabha from Maharashtra. Elder brother Ambani had personally called up prominent BJP leaders and talked in favour of Rajesh Shah. Shah is also close to the Advani family but Advani could not manage to convince the party about Shah and Gadkari was successful in getting his man Ajay Sancheti for the seat. Sancheti is working on several power projects and Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh has a soft corner for him. Babu Singh Kushwaha’s opposition lead to the eclipsing of hopes for Kirit Somaiya.
