Host haste
UNION minister Arun Jaitley, who formally held the finance portfolio until recently, returned to New Delhi post his surgery in New York to a grand party the very next day. Jaitley and his wife Sangeeta hosted the wedding of Ria, the daughter of one of his closest friends, the noted lawyer Anip Sachthey and his wife Ritu. At the Jaitleys’ sprawling bungalow on 2, Krishna Menon Marg, Ria married Chetanya, the son of Barkha and Ashok Singh, a politician from the Capital. The heavyweight wedding saw industry and political leaders such as Kamal Nath, Sunil Mittal, Hari Bhartia, Mukul Rohatgi, Dr Harsh Vardhan, Dilip Cherian, Ritu and Ra jat Sharma, and Ra j Babbar in attendance. Interestingly, Home Minister Rajnath Singh was also present, but, we hear, he made a beeline for the couple, greeted them and left. Apparently, he did not stop to say hello to Jaitley, who was seated in the glassdoored portico.
