Lt Governor seen eating Chhole Bhature at roadside stall, AAP alleges connections with food industry

18, May 2015 By Pagla Ghoda

New Delhi. Aam Aadmi Party has put forth a strong proof of nexus between Lieutenant Governor (LG) Najeeb Jung and the food industry after it published photographs of Jung having Rajma-Chawal and Chhole Bhature at a roadside stall at a local market. While it is not yet clear so as to which companies does AAP actually categorizes as Food industry, but high definition photographs of Mr. Jung devouring various delicious food items are now published on the AAP website as a proof.

AAP supremo Arvind Kejrwal has even written a tough worded letter to LG and has strictly “requested“ him to behave within confines of the constitution. He has advised LG not to indulge in activities such as devouring delicious road-side food which strongly indicate his attachment to food processing and catering industry.

While AAP is now planning a dharna, a candle light march and a banner protest, all three back to back against this alleged nexus, they are getting stiff opposition from an unexpected group. An online fan community by name “Worshippers of Rajma Chaawal (WORCHA)” has registered a strong protest against politicizing something as innocent and neutral as Rajma Chaawal.

Executive Vice Chancellor for WORCHA Mrs. Rajmeeta Chaawla warned AAP volunteers of any nuisance in the name of Rajma Chaawal or there would be dire consequences.

Rajmeeta wrote the following on her food blog, “Galat pangaa le liya hai AAP ne. As die-hard fans of Rajma Chaawal we here by warn AAP volunteers to not drag this innocent dish in any of their political tussles. Rajma Chaawal definitely has more fans and worshippers in any small locality of Delhi than AAP has salaried volunteers in whole Delhi-National Capital Region.”

After this ruckus over Rajma Chaawal started gaining momentum among Delhi population, senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia quickly launched an internal survey to decide if photographs of Najeeb Jung devouring these dishes should be taken down from the AAP website or not. After the results of survey were out it was decided that the photographs of LG eating Rajma Chaawal would be taken down but the ones that show him eating Chhole Bhature would be retained.
