Rae Bareilly: Two railway employees have been placed under suspension for allegedly causing delay in the movement of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi’s cavalcade during her visit here. Authorities took action against the employees, one of them a gateman, for not being present at a rail-crossing which was closed, when the UPA chairperson’s entourage reached there yesterday, official sources said. Gandhi’s cavalcade was stuck midway at a railway crossing of Jalalpur Ghai station and the gateman was missing.The Congress chief is on a visit to her Parliamentary constituency.

Dear Sir,
This reminded me of a story in Hindi where instructions of top brass were passed on to the grass root workers.The exact message was
” Roko Mat, Jaaney Do ” but what got transmitted was :
” Roko,Mat Jaaney Do” !  You can understand the end result and the chaos it must have caused.Hope no heads will roll here.
