And during his brief talk with the media, Home Minister R R Patil was also posed the question of cheer girls at a NCP Dahi Handi. Where on one side BCCI Chief Sharad Pawar was engulfed in the cheer girls performing at 20-20 match controversy, this time it is NCP State President Vijay Kamble who had cheer girls dancing at a significant and religious festival of India, the Dahi Handi. On the issue of cheer girls, it is Home Minister R R Patil who have to face the most from the media as it is the Home Minister’s decision that dance bar in the entire state was shut down and when a member of his own party is promoting cheer girls, somewhere down the line ethical differences are brought up. The same question was posed to Home Minister R R Patil by the media. But since the cheer girl dance was organized by a member of his own party itself, his reply to the media was also supple. Although he further added that he would ensure that such activities are not repeated in an NCP event. While the Minister went defensive on the issue, it cannot be ignored that the cheer girls controversy has somehow marred his image. With cameraperson Abhay Prasad, Rajeev Mishra for NMTV News.
