Will he quit?

Sunday Express - - INDIA -

In the vor­tex of the #MeToo storm, Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs ju­nior min­is­ter M J Ak­bar’s fu­ture in govern­ment is un­der watch. What course he him­self takes and what the govern­ment and the BJP do af­ter he lands back from his tour abroad has been dis­cussed from in­fi­nite an­gles. There’s pal­pa­ble dis­com­fort in the party and among his Cabi­net col­leagues. How­ever, the me­dia may have jumped the gun by de­mand­ing his exit. Giv­ing in may open a Pan­dora’s Box. The in­ci­dents date from his time in the me­dia! Also, #MeToo is be­ing seen as an ‘ur­ban’ woman’s is­sue with lit­tle trac­tion be­yond the big cities.
