When Mr Minister had to face the music

June 07 2015

This Cabinet minister who is close to Modi had no inkling that a foolish mistake will cost him so dearly. Just before Modi was to leave for Dhaka, this particular minister asked for some time, citing urgent reasons. Without further ado, the prime minister asked him to come to his residence at 7, Race Course Road. When the minister reached the prime minister’s residence, he brought along an industrialist who has not only contested and lost the Lok Sabha elections in 2014, but his name also features in the coal block auction scam, and there are several cases registered against him. When Mr Minister was waiting for his turn, prime minister’s personal assistants informed him that there was someone else with the minister and also gave him details about this person. Modi somehow controlled his anger, called only the minister for the meeting and gave him a piece of his mind. Drenched in sweat, the minister asked his industrialist friend to come along and made straight for his car. While travelling back, the minister told his friend the prime minister has assured him that once he gets a clean chit in the coal auction scam, the PM will meet him. An ostrich’s attitude, we say.
