QUITE A MOUTH­FUL

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

BJP leader Arun Jait­ley is a known foodie. His con­ver­sa­tions with jour­nal­ists of­ten re­volve around pol­i­tics, food and cricket. As he stepped out of the party’s elec­tion com­mit­tee meet­ing on March 15, he was fol­lowed by a few jour­nal­ists. All other ques­tions he safely de­flected but when a jour­nal­ist asked Jait­ley if he was con­test­ing from Am­rit­sar, he said: “The food in Am­rit­sar is de­li­cious.” Later that evening, the party an­nounced that Jait­ley would con­test from the seat. Some­times, the way to a man’s con­stituency is through his stomach.
