Smriti’s Rs 8 lakh Ganesha

smiriti-irani-textile-ministerWhen the Textile Minister has issues with a secretary in her ministry, the latter thinks it wise to leave the place for better opportunities. Sources close to the ministry say that one day the minister went to Cottage Industries, which comes under the aegis of the ministry, and bought saris worth several thousand. She also liked an idol of Ganesha, which according to sources cost Rs 8 lakh. It is said that the minister’s personal staff sent the bills for payment to her secretary. They also say that Ms Secretary didn’t like this and retorted that there was no way the bill could be passed. To this, Ms Minister replied saying the textile minister has full right to wear good clothes. Things got so heated between the two that it is said that the Secretary complained about this to the Cabinet Secretary. We are waiting for action.
