Bric a Brac : Gesture of Rijiju

makes amends with sugata
Vol. 12, Issue 5, August 2018

kiran-rijijuParliament is a forum for discussion and debates of national importance. Sometime the debates are heated and sometimes humorous but the ministers generally never lose their tempers. Even if a minister loses it, he or she generally meets the MPs after the debate and expresses regrets. MP Sugata Bose is the grandson of veteran freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose. He is highly educated and has been a professor of history at Harvard University. As the Assam National Citizens Register (NCR) case became the burning topic in Parliament, Sugata Bose fired many questions at the ruling party. The questions was so scorching that the Minister of State for Home, Kiren Rijiju – who was representing the government in the House – lost his temper. Rijiju’s reply to Bose was such that the latter was taken aback for a while. But instead of extenuating the matter, he decided on quietly taking his seat. Rijiju’s reply was that people who are questioning the NRC are anti-nationalists. However, Rijiju soon realised what he had said. As soon as the session ended, he went straight to Sugata and apologised that he didn’t intend to question his patriotism, rather he was carrying his party’s line on the matter. Boss smiled. He knew that when minister is a good pawn of the party, such things happen. gfiles end logo
