Kurta pyjama for Mumbai Mantralaya, bandgalla for Delhi conferences, smart three- piece suit for the World Economic Forum, where Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan was selling his state as an investment destination.
He had to ask brother Mustafa Kamal to step down as National Conference chief spokesman and additional general secretary for saying that Rahul Gandhi has no “role” in Jammu and Kashmir politics.
