Rift within

Business Standard - - DEMOCRACY AT WORK -

Rifts in the Hi­machal Pradesh unit of the BJP are thriv­ing. Fire­brand leader and MLA from Nur­pur, Rakesh Patha­nia, took his gov­ern­ment to task for its lack of su­per­vi­sion of can­cer wards in the state hos­pi­tals: so much so that the CM had to come to the health min­is­ter’s de­fence. Some months ago, Patha­nia was in­vited to a func­tion for farm­ers where the CM was present but he left mid­way fum­ing that he could not take the hu­mil­i­a­tion of be­ing ig­nored. He was not in­vited on the stage.
