Babbar’s Water- loo
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.
