Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde Tuesday surprised Chief Minister Omar Abdullah when he suddenly asked him to wear his hat, presented to him by the BSF officers while welcoming them on the dais.
Caught unawares Omar responded by saying, it does not fit me. In response Shinde again directed him to put it on. Shinde repeatedly told Omar, put it on, put it on. Left with no other option CM reluctantly wore the hat.
It may be mentioned before the start of the sainik sammelan in Samba the senior BSF officers at 68 BSF Batallion headquarters had presented BSF hats to both the Union Home Minister and Chief Minister Omar Abdullah as a mark of honour.
Feeling uncomfortable Omar had kept the hat by his side while Shinde was sporting the same without any fuss.Shinde even interacted with the soldiers sporting a BSF hat and thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality.
