  • The second Smriti Irani snub

    The mini reshuffle of the Union Ministry a couple of days ago was notable for the snub to Smriti Irani.

Suffering from an intense inferiority complex, she shuffled around senior officials for no better reason than to prove who was in-charge.

To insist that all the 125 winners who were supposed to be bestowed these prestigious awards be personally handed these by President Ram Nath Kovind was insensitive and unreasonable. The boycott by 50-odd award winners because the I & B Minister Smriti Irani

    Film awards rake up controversy

    The fiasco triggered off by the decision of President Ram Nath Kovind’s office to segregate the awardees in the 65th National Film Awards between those who were to be given the award by the President at a special function in New Delhi on Wednesday and those who were to receive the awards from Union ministers Smriti Irani and Rajyavardhan Rathore reflects poor thinking and was in rank poor taste.
