Paswan ji passes with flying colors

January 25 2016

Ever since talks have gained ground that several ministers from the Bihar quota might be in trouble after the terrible loss in Bihar elections, Union Minister for Food and Public Distribution Ram Vilas Paswan appears to be completely besotted with Modi. On the completion of 19 months of Modi government, Paswan held a press conference at his home instead of his own office. The press conference lasted for an hour-and-a-half, and Paswan ji was armed with his favourite lines, such as “Maan letey hain”, “Jo hai ki”, and “Kya kehtey hain”. He gave the credit for each and every accomplishment of his ministry to none other than the prime minister. The backdrop also had pictures of only Modi and none else. As part of a well thought-out strategy, Paswan had instructed his brother Ramchandra Paswan and Parliamentarian son Chirag Paswan to stay inside the house itself. As soon as the press conference got over and lunch was served, both Ramchandra and Chirag Paswan emerged from the house. Chirag met journalists with a lot of warmth, and one of the journalists wanted to know the party’s stand about the suicide of a Dalit student in Hyderabad. Chirag’s readymade answer was, “We formed a fact-finding committee under the leadership of Ramchandra Paswan ji, and the committee handed me the report last night. I’m going through it, and if needed, we will talk to the prime minister about it.” Paswan ji’s chest puffed with pride at Chirag’s reply; he was seeing his political inheritance being taken care of and growing.
