Tonight on The Buck Stops Here:
The Indrani plot thickens; Maria gets marching orders, then brought back on probe
On The Buck Stops Here, we debate Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' flip flop. He gave marching orders to Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria and within hours said he will continue to head Indrani Mukerjea investigation. On this fiery debate, BJP spokesperson Shaina NC explains Rakesh Maria's sudden transfer, saying that someone senior was needed to oversee Ganpati festival. Former IPS officer YP Singh says it will be illegal for Mr Maria to head Sheena Bora murder probe after being removed as commissioner. We debate: Where does the buck stop for this Maharashtra mess-up?
'PM Modi's remark on Nitish's DNA avoidable': Shatrughan Sinha takes aim
Speaking exclusively to NDTV, BJP senior leader and MP Shatrughan Sinha said: "PM (Modi) didn't mean his remark on Nitish Kumar's DNA, but the comment was avoidable." The actor-politician defended his meetings with Nitish Kumar and Arvind Kejriwal, saying "courtesies and friendships are not bound by party" and that he talked development with the two chief ministers. Calling Nitish Kumar "a dear friend" Mr Sinha said that Mr Kumar was "one of the best chief ministers". Was he upset at not being included in the Modi Cabinet? Mr Sinha said that he was "mature enough to understand that choosing Cabinet is PM's prerogative", but his voters and well-wishers were upset that he wasn't made a minister.
