Union Home Minister and senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh landed himself in trouble when he was spotted with his personal security officers tying the minister’s shoelaces. In the footage aired by media, ‘tired’ Rajnath was seen sitting in a chair and taking assistance from his junior officials in getting tie his shoelaces.
This naturally invited a lot of ire, flak from people, Opposition parties and media personnel. The unfortunate incident took place on Thursday during the Home Minister’s visit to Kutch, place near India-Pakistan border. This is not one instance where political class was caught making officials do menial works. Earlier Mayawati, when she was the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, too did the same.
