At Tipu Jayanti celebration, Minister Tanveer Sait has his hands full

Submitted by alvin on Thu, 2016-11-10 17:06 A grab from Tv9 Raichur: We have seen politicians snoozing on the dais unmindful of what’s going on around them but here’s another minister who has crossed all the boundaries of shame! We are talking about Primary and Secondary Education minister Tanveer Sait who was caught watching sleazy pictures on his mobile while being a part of Tipu Jayanti celebrations in Raichur, on Thursday.  The minister was attending the Tipu Jayanti celebrations organised at Rangamandira in Raichur. After the ceremonial rituals – from inauguration to accepting felicitation – the programme moved to next session where a speaker was introducing the audience about Tipu and his achievements. While the whole audience was engrossed in the programme, Tanveer Sait was glancing over his mobile phone. He was caught looking at a bunch of sleazy pictures on his mobile by a television camera. He was captured for over ten seconds absolutely oblivious of being recorded. When he did realise, he quietly closed his phone and behaved as if nothing happened at all.  Despite stiff opposition from the BJP, the government has gone ahead to celebrate the Tipu Jayanti. But the minister does not seem to share the government’s sentiment on the celebration leave alone understanding the seriousness of the celebration.  Wakf Minister Sait’s action has come under severe criticism. BJP MP Shobha Karandlaje and former MLC Go Madhusudhan have termed it a “Shameful” act by Sait and demanded his resignation.
