THE moment any politician from whichever political party takes over as Chief Minister of Haryana, the very next day the wheeler dealers start their work and everybody in Chandigarh is soon aware of who can get the work done for a price. The current Chief Minister, Manohar Lal Khattar, appears to be an exception but not his government. There is possibly no one who can claim that he/she has negotiated a deal with Khattar till now. But, senior BJP functionaries are whispering that there is a big facilitator operating from Chandigarh. He belongs to Uttar Pradesh. Earlier, he was close to former Chief Minister of UP, Mayawati. Sources disclosed that the builder lobby is being traumatised by the facilitator to cough up the desired money to run the party at the Centre and State. It is learnt that this facilitator is being patronised by a powerful minister of Haryana. The news has already spread in BJP headquarters and party president Amit Shah is aware of the notorious deal broker. No wonder, Manohar Lal Khattar and the powerful minister were suddenly summoned in the last week of July by Shah. What transpired is yet to be disclosed. Why the ‘honest’ BJP leadership is not able to expose the facilitator is still an enigma.
