Vantage point

Wednesday, May 21, 2003


You know what Vajpayee is here for? To inaugurate the Lucknow-Jeddah flights. Plus he has got some other shcmancy functions to attend do, and more ribbons to slash. What I don't understand is, if the PM starts inaugurating stuff, what the hell is the President supposed to do? I would rather that the PM do his job and make life easier for us. Sit there in Delhi and not put us through those painful traffic jams.

By the way, if a Prime Ministerial candidate ever wanted to contest from my constituency and wanted my vote, the only promise he has to make is "I will NEVER visit my constituency in the coming five years". I would ask "NEVER? Do I have your word on it?". He would nod and I would vote for him.
