ITEM PASS

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Call it the Rakhi Sawant ef­fect. From now on, all visi­tor passes is­sued by Par­lia­ment will carry a one- line warn­ing that vis­i­tors are al­lowed not to speak to the me­dia on the premises. Dur­ing the Bud­get ses­sion in March, TV ac­tor Sawant had grabbed me­dia at­ten­tion when she vis­ited Par­lia­ment and pro­ceeded to give sound bites, of­fer­ing her sug­ges­tions for the Bud­get. Once bit­ten by Rakhi, ter­ri­bly shy it seems.
