Subhash’s Mission RS

hitching a bicycle ride

by-the-way-Subhash-Mission-RS-may2016SUBHASH Chandra, the proprietor of Zee TV, has received only disappointment at the hands of the BJP. Maybe that is the reason why he is now a part of the Mulayam durbar’s nine ratnas. Sources say the BJP leadership had promised the media mogul that he would be given a Rajya Sabha seat from the Haryana quota. When that didn’t happen, Chandra went to meet Mulayam with the help of his now dear friend, Amar Singh. With Singh’s assistance, Chandra’s meeting with Mulayam was quite satisfactory. Akhilesh Yadav, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, also spoke to Chandra. Thereafter, Chandra and Singh jointly hosted the reception party of Mulayam’s younger brother Shivpal Singh Yadav’s son, in Delhi. Initially, it was thought that the reception would be hosted at Singh’s 10-acre farm in Mehrauli. But later, the venue was changed to Bhagwan Dass Road. To make the occasion really special, Singh had invited the President, Prime Minister and several Cabinet ministers; several noted film personalities were also invited. But, as was expected from Delhi’s power circles that move with the wind, nobody turned up except Sridevi-Boney Kapoor, and Jaya Prada. Akhilesh was at the programme for a fairly long time and he too identified with the feelings of other guests that the two hosts were trying to hitch a ride on the bicycle to reach the Upper House of Parliament.
