Cen­tre of Arts and The­atrics

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

Call it the irony of all ironies. Ra­jiv Gandhi had set up the Indira Gandhi Na­tional Cen­tre for the Arts as an au­ton­o­mous or­gan­i­sa­tion in 1985, and named it af­ter his mother. Now, BJP has now cho­sen author-jour­nal­ist Ram Ba­hadur Rai as its pres­i­dent. In­ci­den­tally, Rai shot to fame when he was part of an 11-mem­ber com­mit­tee of the JP move­ment launched to oust Indira Gandhi.
