A regular column on the essential buzz

Deep Throat Cartoon by R. Prasad

Pass or Fail?

Did the chief of a news outfit submit a false affidavit to gain a permanent Parliament pass? Parliament has its own rules about issuing press passes and it is very strict in enforcing them. Even the legendary Vinod Mehta was not offered a Central Hall pass because he never covered the proceedings. Yet, this head honcho shamelessly claimed he had done the mandatory sessions and hence is eligible for a pass. And got it too. Insiders, who never appreciated the para-dropper from a foreign news organisation, are up in arms. Have we heard the last of it or will there be a bit of litigation too? Ask Pgurus.
