Bab­bar’s Wa­ter- loo

India Today - - UPFRONT -

The tag of a star cam­paigner does not come with­out haz­ards. Film star- turned- Congress MP Raj Bab­bar learned it the hard way in Bi­har on May 30 when he reached his ho­tel in Si­wan af­ter a gru­elling cam­paign for the Ma­hara­j­ganj by- elec­tion. Bab­bar saw to his hor­ror that his ho­tel room had an In­dian- style toi­let. Bab­bar was some­how per­suaded by lo­cal lead­ers to stay the night in Ch­hapra at a lo­cal doc­tor’s home. Some Congress lead­ers al­lege that they had booked the “right room” for Bab­bar but the ho­tel au­thor­i­ties al­lot­ted it to some JD( U) min­is­ters. Hmm. Now this is one con­tro­versy that can­not be eas­ily flushed away.
