According to sources, the Whatsapp group admin of BJP has removed the minister from the group. And to make matters worse party spokesperson are sulking away from TV debates to avoid making any comments on the ministers involvment.

Left with no other option, on advice of his lawyers MJ Akbar is all set to rename himself as MJ Amar to find favor with the Govt.

Speaking to Faking News one of the lawyer said, “With the renaming of Allahabad to Prayagraj it is clear what the priorities are. So we thought if our client opts for a more ‘Hindu’ sounding name. So we suggested replacing Akbar with Amar, after the famous character in the movie Amar Akbar Anthony.”

Though critics say that this cosmetic change might not yield much, the name change has already started working for the minister. No sooner the announcement was made, he was added back to the Whatsapp group from which the had been ousted.

The Opposition party however was in not mood to let go this opportunity to corner the Govt. “Why Amar? why not Anthony? questioned Rahul Gandhi while speaking at a rally
