These days a slightly chastened oil minister Murli Deora is busy putting his foot in to his mouth. The other day, while introducing some foreign delegates to the Director General of Hydrocarbons V K Sibal, Deora said meet V K Sibal - our director general for carbohydrates. Look like the minister needs a dose of carbs very desperately to restore his memory loss. The gaswale uncle is being pilloried for his partisan role in the gas opera. Recently in a fit of pique when journos were addressing him as Murli Kaka, he shouted - don't call me that, all my nephews are hassling me these days. I guess it doen't pay to support one nephew against the other, best to be at arm's length distance from both.
Looks like the affable Murli has bitten more than he can chew this time round.
