Gurgaon: Union Home Minister P Chidambaram
fired a couple of rounds from a Light Machine Gun (LMG) to
give a sound start to the opening of a shooting drill here
today.

Chidambaram pulled the trigger like a professional
shooter prompting reporters to ask whether he hit the bull`s
eye but there were no answers from officials present at
Kadarpur school where he had gone to inaugurate the
Intelligence School of the CRPF.

After finishing his customary address at the school, the
Home Minister was escorted to the shooting range by Director
General of CRPF K Vijay Kumar.

An LMG was kept ready for the Home Minister to fire the
first bullet at the 50 metre Baffle firing range.

Chidambaram was offered ear caps which he refused and
stepped ahead to pull the trigger of the LMG.

A loud noise from the firing of the bullets echoed in the
range as officers and cadets present at the function clapped
in appreciation.

"Was it a bull`s eye?," was the question of reporters
present at the spot but the queries found no answers as the
VIP moved to his place to witness the firing demonstration by
CRPF personnel with different weapons.
