Delhi CM to meet I&B minister on CAS

NEW DELHI: The last day of the year may just about witness another twist in the already twisted CAS tale.

 

 

Delhi chief minister Sheila Dixit, after her flip-flop stance on conditional access, is slated to meet up with the information and broadcasting minister Ravi Shankar Prasad at 4 pm again today. This would be her second meeting with Prasad within a fortnight.



What is surprising is that coming along with Dixit --- heading a Congress government in the apital --- is a senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader and a Member of Parliament from one of the Delhi parliamentary seats, Vijay K Malhotra.



Both Dixit and Malhotra have been critical of the rollout of CAS in South Delhi areas, stating that in its present form, it is not consumer friendly.



A few days ago, Malhotra also wrote a letter to Prasad saying that CAS should be deferred in Delhi for a year.



With general elections looming large over the country, much ahead of the late 2004 polls as had been envisaged, consigning of CAS to the dustbin of history may end up becoming a populist measure for power and vote hungry politicians.



Star tuned for more details on today's meeting.
