Rahul to Moily’s rescue?
 how he survived cabinet re-jig
THE Union Law and Justice Minister, M Veerappa Moily, has not only saved his Cabinet post but also his portfolio despite hushed talk in the corridors of power about his imminent ouster from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s Council of Ministers. It is being said that not only is Moily’s performance lacklustre, but he has failed to protect the image of the UPA in the prevailing circumstances with one scam after another breaking. Those close to Moily claim that he is himself seeking a change of portfolio. Apparently, his dream is to move to HRD. A little bird told us that Moily should thank son-in-law Anand Adkoli. Married to Moily’s second daughter, Sushma, who is a mediaperson, Adkoli works for a certain high-profile Congress General Secretary headed for the seat of power on Raisina Hill. Adkoli is an admired IT professional who had a brief but successful career in the US and returned home to join Rahul Gandhi’s staff. Sushma had a stint in journalism before graduating to the small screen under celebrity director MS Sathyu.
