Bric-a-Brac : Uma’s drama

‘ask pm to sack me’

uma-bharti-ask-pm-to-sack-meTHE last reshuffle of the cabinet by the Prime Minister was supposed to be an elaborate one but the BJP leadership had to reconcile with five new inductions. Narendra Modi is known for his firm decisions but the tremor within cabinet members forced him to move ahead with a small expansion. Sources disclosed that the BJP leadership wanted to remove firebrand sadhavi Uma Bharati, the Minister for Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation. The situation became so fraught that Uma Bharati was asked to resign by the top leadership to pave the way for new incumbents but this infuriated the former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh. Party insiders reveal that Uma Bharati categorically refused to resign and asked the top leaders to inform the Prime Minister to dismiss her from the ministership. Finally, Nitin Gadkari consoled her and advised Modi to ward off further drama queen by just shifting her from the present ministry to Drinking Water and Sanitation. Uma’s anger could be felt when she said while taking charge of the Drinking water and Sanitation Ministry, “No one can separate me from Ganga. Ganga is still with me… If I had failed how can Gadkari get this portfolio because I had worked in close coordination and close consultations with him (Gadkari) on Namami Gange project.” gfiles end logo
