GANDHI GOV­ER­NORS

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

It’s a good time to be a Gandhi fam­ily loy­al­ist. For­mer SPG chief B. V. Wan­choo has been sent to Goa as gov­er­nor. An­other dur­bari, Aziz Qureshi, has been sent to Ut­tarak­hand, and has pro­claimed his in­debt­ed­ness to So­nia Gandhi. For­mer gov­er­nor of Ut­tarak­hand Mar­garet Alva has been given sen­si­tive Ra­jasthan which goes to polls in 2013. She has long tired of the hills, and said so of­ten enough. Two more posts still have to be filled— the gov­er­nor of Ut­tar Pradesh as well as Lt- Gov­er­nor of Delhi. The buzz in Delhi is that fam­ily loy­al­ist R. K. Dhawan, or for­mer Union min­is­ter C. K. Jaf­fer Sharief may be sent to Ut­tar Pradesh. That hasn’t stopped other loy­al­ists from pol­ish­ing their bio- datas.
