India Today - - UPFRONT - San­deep Un­nithan with Sh­weta Punj, Rahul Noronha, Romita Datta, Aravind Gowda

Af­ter Mandla col­lec­tor Su­fiyah Fa­rooqui car­ried Adi Shankara’s cha­ran padukas (wooden san­dals) on her head dur­ing a govern­ment yatra early Jan­uary, Congress lead­ers in Mad­hya Pradesh, such as Ajay Singh, say they’re com­pil­ing a list of bu­reau­crats closely aligned with the BJP govern­ment. Fa­rooqui said she was only par­tic­i­pat­ing in a govern­ment pro­gramme, but the Congress is un­re­lent­ing. Doesn’t hurt af­ter all to keep bu­reau­crats on their toes in an elec­tion year.
