A request by a politico for a helicopter ride to attend an important meeting at the periphery was curtly turned down by the Big Boss, they say.
The politico had explained that the proposed trip by land- a tedious one -would take long hours. “So, please give me permission to travel by air!”
“You all have been given good vehicles and are getting free petrol and diesel! And you want to go by air!” the Big Boss had railed.
“I seldom travel by air…And he says ‘no’… as if I always ask for the facility! We must give ourselves a good beating for raising him to this high status!” the politico had later told his buddies who commiserated with him.
