Eco­nomic Defender

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

In times of eco­nomic trou­ble, Congress can’t seem to find an ar­tic­u­late de­fence for it­self. On Au­gust 19, Raj Bab­bar— who will for­ever be re­mem­bered for his “Rs 12 meal in Mum­bai” re­mark— in­tro­duced a new face at the Congress press brief­ing, Bhalchan­dra Mungekar, a nom­i­nated mem­ber of the Ra­jya Sabha. Mungekar played a vi­tal role in draft­ing pro­vi­sions of MGNREGA and was rewarded with a nom­i­na­tion to Ra­jya Sabha in 2010. It’s pay­back time for him now. Un­for­tu­nately, his TV de­but made him sound a lot like the co­me­dian Ku­nal Vi­jaykar in full flow.
