All’s Well In Canada All through last week, as BJP MPs waged war against the government over the Coalgate scam, one person in the saffron party was conspicuous by his absence—party president Nitin Gadkari. Insiders confirm that as the BJP parliamentary party clocked extra hours to prepare strategy to combat the government, Gadkari was off enjoying a family holiday in Canada. Accompanied by wife, two sons and daughters-in-law, Gadkari is on a two-week break and will only be back on September 12, by which time the smoke from the coal smelters could well have died out. Party insiders say Gadkarisaab is a wealthy businessman in his personal capacity and can afford expensive holidays. Others snigger that since the RSS has chosen to keep him in the hot seat for another term, he’s got no worries!
