Bric a Brac : Food for thought

the rise of shrikant sharma

SHRIKANT Sharma is today the national secretary and media convener of the Bharatiya Janta Party. He has seen a meteoric rise in the party ever since Amit Shah became President. A friend of Finance Minister Arun Jaitely, Sharma is an old ABVP hand and was brought as Media Convener of the BJP’s Media Cell by the then party President Nitin Gadkari. He has never looked back since. Sharma was expecting to fight the 2014 Lok Sabha Election from Mathura and had lobbied hard for the same. But, somehow, Hema Malini got the ticket. After lot of hard work, he has finally got the ticket for Mathura assembly. How, one may ask. Clearly, politics has taught Sharma some tricks of the trade. The day Amit Shah joined as party president, Sharma got hold of him and created a space for himself in the inner ring of the party. It was not an easy job. Sharma found out that Amit Shah likes homemade food. Homemade food was a distant dream for Shah as he lives alone in Delhi, so Sharma came to his rescue. He made it a point that whenever Shah was in Delhi, he used to bring home cooked food prepared in desi ghee every time. The old cliché says a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Shrikant did the same and finally got the ticket from Mathura.
