Washing away sins

times & mimes
Washing away sins
anand at kumbh
Union Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma, who has earned quite a reputation amongst his Cabinet colleagues and senior party leaders as a man who enjoys his regular drink in the evening, is being watched carefully by the party leadership for his connections and friendship with men who are themselves under the microscope of the law. One such connect is with a gentleman who was behind bars for the last six months in the 2G scam. To get Sharma out of the limelight, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda offered him a ride in his special plane to take a dip in the Sangam during the auspicious Mahakumbh. Sharma, of course, is not known for any overtly religious feelings but when you hail from Haryana, do your politics in Himachal Pradesh, get a Rajya Sabha berth from Rajasthan, marry in South Africa and strike business deals in the national capital, then you definitely need to take a dip in the holy waters and search for the right blessings!!!
