TIME FOR FACELIFT
SEVERAL offices in the Civil Aviation Ministry are currently undergoing renovation. A new office is being created on the third floor of Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan for the new Minister of State, K C Venugopal. Its previous occupant, Joint Secretary Anil Srivastava, has found a room on the second floor which, too, is resurrected for him, with classy high wooden doors. Not to be left behind, Prabhat Kumar, the high-profile former OSD of Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh and now a Joint Secretary, is also getting a facelift of his office. He has merged two rooms to create his new office, which probably is now the most spacious and plush office in the ministry.
THE open rebellion by BJP national executive members Mahesh Jethmalani and Jagdish Shettigar, who have been demanding the resignation of party president Nitin Gadkari because of the allegations levelled against him, is being explained by many in party in Delhi as a case of "personal hurt". Both these leaders were contenders for a ticket for the Rajya Sabha, but were overlooked. Gadkari preferred his old friend Ajay Sancheti over Jethmalani while Shettigar lost out to one R Ramakrishna, an old party worker who is a trusted hand in the party's election cell in Delhi.
