As the BJP leaders MP Kirron Kher, local chief Sanjay Tandon, veteran leaders and former MPs Satya Pal Jain and Harmohan Dhawan came together to release their manifesto ‘the vision document’ for MC elections 2016, bonhomie and sarcasm were on display.

MP Kirron Kher was as usual her witty self and did not lose a chance to make the event lighter. Soon after entering she looked at additional solicitor general of India, Satya Pal Jain, and said,” You kept us waiting.” To this Jain, immediately replied, “Thank god, someone waits for me.”

Kher, in another light remark, standing next to Chandigarh BJP chief, said, “One looks really short standing next to Mr Tandon.”

The event proceeded and Tandon started listing out achievements. As he credited the MC for 24-hour supply of water project after agreement with Punjab Government, Kher intervened. She said, “I actually took the water issue with the Punjab and Haryana governments.”

In a similar reaction, when Tandon, attacking Congress, said that getting water was not rocket science and was just a simple thing, Kher nodded, implying, “It is not that simple.”

Even when Tandon remarked demonetisation was like labour pain and would bear fruitful results as a baby boy, Kher interrupted and said, “I take exception, it can be a baby girl too.”

But in the end, as they say ‘all is well that ends well’, Kher said, “We all our working together as a team for city’s development and are delivering as one, be it party leaders, MPs or councillors.”
