Not Minister, Just Manager

June 26 2017

The once flamboyant and high-flying Jay Panda is all at sea suddenly, all the time lost in his thoughts. The leader of the Biju Janata Dal, now estranged from party boss Naveen Pattnaik, is known to have been knocking on the doors of the Central BJP for quite some time now. There are strong rumours that he recently had even a crucial meeting with PM Narendra Modi. Sources reveal that during the tete-a-tete, Panda reminded the PM of his clear edge in foreign affairs, and that he has been the president of the Indo-US Friendship Forum for the past 10 years. Panda, it seems, is all geared up to join the BJP. Jay had apparently desired that he be made a junior minister in the ministry of foreign affairs. And sources also says that the PM had been open to give him a plum post. But now he has been given a much lesser assignment of heading the FICCI friendship forum. He is now tasked to build relations with Germany and Israel. Poor Panda, from a haloed dream of being a minister, he is now a mere manager.
