Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj surprised her hosts, at a media luncheon get-together organised by Delhi BJP president Vijay Goel. Amid the glare of media cameras, Sushma Swaraj did not wait for another plate to be served and instead chose to start eating from the plate of leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley, even as he was seen asking for another plate. In a lighter vein, Sushma remarked, "If we eat out of two separate plates, it does not make news. If we eat from the same plate, it makes news."
Sushma and Jaitley are not exactly on the same page on many issues. It is very much on similar lines like Vajpayee versus Advani. While Sushma is seen to be more like Vajpayee, a mass-based leader, Jaitley is seen like Advani, a shrewd strategist. Sushma sought to make the point that all is well with them. Perceived as rivals in the party, she seized the opportunity to make a political point that there are no differences between the two leaders.
