Bric a Brac

Welcome…

...and unwelcome visitors

JP-NaddaONCE you become a national leader from a local leader, it has its own consequences. BJP’s president Jagat Prakash Nadda hails from Himachal Pradesh. Though he has been a minister in the cabinet, he has never been a mass leader. He came into prominence due to his proximity with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Today he lives in a big ministerial bungalow. Mr. Nadda likes a very hygienic atmosphere but being the president of a national party, his home is flooded with visitors and political leaders from all walks of life. To cater to the crowds is necessary and that includes making arrangements for water and toilets. Officials at Nadda’s house, however, don’t seem to like common people entering the house, so they have put a urinal van just at the entry gate of the house. Though it’s a good arrangement but clean environment of the road is spoiled by the old fashioned van. Home Minister of India Amit Shah too faces a problem. The Anti CAA/NPR demonstrations have created another issue for him. In 2014, former Home Minister Shushil Kumar Shinde also used to live on this road. When the Nirbhaya rape case agitation was at its peak, the youngsters barged in. The security officials who manage VIP security are aware about the seriousness of the movement of CAA/ NPR and they don’t want to take any chances. So they have closed the road by barricading Krishna Menon Marg and Sunheri Bagh Road. Delhi is now under the National Security Act. The Lieutenant Governor of Delhi passed an order conferring the Commissioner of Police with the power to detain under the draconian National Security Act (NSA) for a period of three months — between 19 January and 18 April. Now the kings and queens of Lutyen’s Delhi can sleep in winter with comfort.gfiles end logo
