Bric a Brac : Dry New Year for BJP leaders

pm’s diktat disturbs many plans

dry-New-Year-for-BJP-leadersTHE culture in Delhi’s power circle is changing fast. Earlier there used to be New Year parties at the residence of many cabinet ministers where journalists, leaders from all walks of life and business houses were invited. Liquor used to flow like water. All this has changed now. The NDA government led by Narendra Modi has, in fact, changed the dynamics of Delhi power circle. Those saffron leaders who liked to celebrate their New Year in foreign destinations got a message from PMO that all Ministers of the Union Government should celebrate New Year with simplicity. The PM’s order apparently made several leaders cancel their tickets. Nitin Gadkari was one of those who changed their plan and Gadkari celebrated his New Year in Nagpur instead. A very senior legal luminary who is part of the government celebrated in Goa. According to sources, he organised a party on December 30-31 in North Goa’s Grand Hyatt Hotel. Many high profile guests attended the celebration. Ironically, the hotel belongs to Shahid Balwa, allegedly named in Coalgate and 2G scam. Some senior ministers who were in Delhi organised vegetarian dinners with their very close friends, of course, without cocktails.
