Their demand comes at a time when the centre is undecided on whether to drop Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law, Robert Vadra, from the list of VIPs exempted from Airport Security checks. So while the common man is left to wait in long queues, the so-called gurus will whiz by. The big question is how long will the government allow such VIP entitlement.
