Rudy takes a shine

con­nec­tion of a jew­elry shop

Gfiles - - BRIC-A-BRAC -

Former min­is­ter Ra­jiv Pratap Rudy and Fag­gan Singh Ku­laste are among some of the MPs who are fu­ri­ous with the style of the func­tion­ing of the PMO since they have been ejected as the Min­is­ter for Skill De­vel­op­ment and Min­is­ter of State for Health and Fam­ily Wel­fare, re­spec­tively. Af­ter the tantrum by Uma Bharati, both Rudy and Ku­laste were quite ag­i­tated when they were asked to re­sign from the min­is­ter­ship. Both have the grudge that they have never been given an op­por­tu­nity to ex­plain their achieve­ments be­fore the Prime Min­is­ter. Sources close to Rudy in­formed that he has been seek­ing an ap­point­ment to meet the Prime Min­is­ter for past eight months, but the PMO did not give him any time. Even dur­ing the ap­praisal of his min­istry, the PMO used to call the sec­re­tary of the min­istry. Sources, how­ever, in­formed that in­ef­fi­ciency was not the only rea­son for Rudy’s ouster. His hon­esty and in­tegrity as a min­is­ter was al­legedly in doubt. It is learnt that in the cor­ri­dors of the min­istry, it was known that peo­ple who have work with the min­istry had to go to a jew­eller’s shop in South Delhi be­fore meet­ing the min­is­ter. This was brought to the no­tice of RSS stal­warts and Rudy was shown the door. Ku­laste, how­ever, be­came a vic­tim of fel­low state politi­cians who are more set­tled and ag­gres­sive in Delhi.
