The prince is banished from the kingdom

We are actually held speechless (only for a moment to be sure). Is this actually India that we know so well of where a well-off person never bothers to stand in a queue. And these majestic words simply take your breath away: “If Gandhi has to apply, he should apply himself in person or send
application signed by him with all the essential documents”

Life is super strange these days but it is clear that the bureaucracy (aka steel frame) that actually rule India is showing its true colors. It will not bow to any man, common or royal. Whether it is a positive sign or not, the answer is blowing in the wind.

The local administration has cancelled application of Congress Vice
President and local MP Rahul Gandhi for issuance of domicile
certificate.

“The application should have been made by Gandhi himself with his
signature, which was not there. The application was made by one Rajendra
Singh with is against law”, District Magistrate, Jagatraj Tripathi
today told PTI when asked about cancellation of the application.

The papers needed with the application were also not there, he added.

“If Gandhi has to apply, he should apply himself in person or send
application signed by him with all the essential documents”, the DM
said.

Bank account of all the candidates are to be opened on dircetions of EC
and for this domicile certificate is needed, the officer clarified.

Congress Amethi spokesman Rajendra Singh had applied for the certificate
showing Munshiganj Guest house as temporary address of Gandhi and the
administration had cancelled the application terming it against rules
and regulations.
