It has been two and a half weeks since PM Modi started his crusade against black money and demonetised old ₹500 and ₹1000 notes. People are either supporting it or calling its execution a monumental failure.
BJP distanced itself from the extravagant 500-crore-Reddy-wedding too, in order to avoid unwarranted attention. But, when a Maharashtrian BJP MLA Ram Kadam got his minor son a Mercedes as a birthday gift, it put the party in a strange spot.
Ram Kadam; in his own words: “dashing MLA of Ghatkopar West Mumbai of Bhartiya Janta Party”; on November 19 got his minor son a lavish birthday gift. It was a brand new Mercedes E350 Cabriolet. Wondering what would a kid do with a lux-car? So are we.
It didn’t take much time for people to start asking questions.
