IT IS Sidhuism all the way in the local bodies department headed by Navjot Singh Sidhu, who has brought the otherwise dull public office alive with his signature one-liners. An ace cricketer of yore, Sidhu, known for his colour-coordinated attire, is certainly a head-turner for his colleagues as well as visitors to his office. “Saade mantriji nu janta vaise hee dekhan aa rahi hai (People are coming to our office just to catch a glimpse of our minister),” said a woman employee at the Department of Local Bodies in Sector 35, Chandigarh.
It has just been two days since the minister shifted to this office from the Punjab Secretariat.
“People have to get passes to meet a minister there. It is a lot of inconvenience. That is why I have shifted here permanently. Anybody can come here anytime to meet me. Also, the entire office is here. Why do I need to sit in that office,” he says.
