It’s insulting enough for anyone to be described as Shikandi, given the connotations of impotence the name carries on its own; it’s even worse for a man who has been caricatured as a yesman, but wears his character and integrity as badges of honour.

The specific charge is of wrongdoing in the allotment of coal blocks for mining, based on a preliminary CAG report—a scam that has come to be known as Coalgate.
