Sunday Times - - Opinion -

And then there is Ashu Chawla, the Gupta lieu­tenant who was at the cen­tre of the cap­ture of the state. He has since fled to In­dia, fear­ing the Hawks will swoop. In­stead of telling our law­mak­ers he was not will­ing to re­turn to ap­pear be­fore them, he sent a long list of ridicu­lous de­mands. They in­clude be­ing flown busi­ness class from New Delhi. But the most out­ra­geous is his re­quest for a Hindi in­ter­preter, de­spite the fact that he is ar­tic­u­late in English. The good life un­der the Zupta regime has sent him bonkers.
