Weight loss surgery, it seems, can be a political unifier. Former BJP president Nitin Gadkari had undergone a much-publicised operation to reduce his weight some time back. Now it is the turn of Renu Jogi, wife of former Chhattisgarh chief minister Ajit Jogi. Incidentally, Renu, a sitting Congress MLA in the Chhattisgarh Assembly, is not obese as one would expect someone undergoing such a surgery to be. She went through the procedure apparently because she wanted to be fit to walk long distances while campaigning for the upcoming Assembly elections later this year.
