Khera and his kitchen garden

img-oct2014-30It is well known that the de facto boss of the Sheila Dikshit Government in Delhi was Pawan Khera. After sister Rama Dhawan, it was Khera who enjoyed the confidence of the former Chief Minister. Dikshit vacated her 3, Motilal Nehru Marg residence immediately after demitting office but Khera is still occupying two NDMC houses in Kaka Nagar even after Dikshit has resigned from the Governorship of Kerala. Khera got the two houses re-allotted from Jalaj Srivastava, IAS, NDMC Chairman, when Dikshit was appointed as Kerala Governor on the basis that he was serving the governor as an adviser. But now that Dikshit is no more a Governor, officially Khera has to vacate the houses immediately. These houses have got open spaces and a civic facility centre has to be constructed by the NDMC. It is learnt that whenever the NDMC tried to construct this civic facility centre, Khera was instrumental and influential enough in keeping the files in abeyance. The reason is that Khera has a beautiful kitchen garden in the open field. Wait for when the laid-back NDMC asks its ex-boss to vacate these priceless premises. More stories of Pawan Khera later…
