Agra MP Katheria raises storm by cutting Parliament-shaped cake on his birthday

September 23, 2018

Agra MP and National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) chairman Ram Shankar Katheria seems to have a penchant for raising storms with his inexplicable actions. This time, Katheria has ‘taken the cake’ by cutting a 54-kg cake on his birthday, that was a replica of the Parliament of India.

In the pictures that have gone viral on the social media, Katheria and his wife Mrudula are seen slashing through the top of the Parliament-shaped cake with big smiles on their faces. Those who were present on the occasion claim that there was also a national flag on the cake, which was later removed when the cake was being cut.

Incensed by the senseless act of self-promotion by Katheria by defacing a national symbol, several political parties have come out openly against the two-time Agra MP, demanding that since he had no honour for the national symbols, he should resign from the constitutional post of NCSC chairman immediately.

Even the Hindu outfits like the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) commented against this act by Katheria and demanded that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leadership should take note of this act of Katheria and show him his place.

VHP regional working committee’s former member Subhash Dhal said that the Parliament is the topmost temple of Indian democracy and defacing its replica with a knife is equal to an attack on the institution of democracy itself.

Samajwadi Party (SP) city president Wajid Nisar said that an MP defacing a replica of the Parliament indicates how much honour that person has for the institution of democracy in his heart.

Congress city president Haji Jameeluddin clearly said that Katheria committed the murder of democracy by cutting a cake shaped as a replica of the Parliament and he should not be allowed to sit in the Parliament for this offense.

He demanded that the parliamentary privilege committee should take note of this act and ask Katheria to give an explanation.

BSP local secretary Amjad Qureshi told India Today that Katheria should apologise to the people and seek their forgiveness for this disastrous act by resigning from the Parliament. If he does not immediately resign, then he should be summarily expelled from the party by BJP party president Amit Shah.

Notably, Katheria was celebrating his 54th birthday at his official residence in Agra on Friday, where he cut the cake which also was made complete with a driveway and a fleet of cars.

Local newspapers had carried large advertisements greeting the MP on his birthday, but now even those who had given these ads are condemning Katheria’s act in muted voices. There are only a select few cake makers in Agra who could have designed such a cake, but nobody is owning up to this fiasco right now.
