New Delhi. Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi seems to be on a mission to capture imagination of just about every Indian.
After batting for farmers and net neutrality in Parliament, Rahul has now decided to bat for Mumbai Indians, this time literally, to pull the franchise out of misery in ongoing season of IPL.
Rahul Gandhi took this decision after seeing MI fans getting disappointed having lost to arch rivals Delhi Daredevils yesterday.
Rahul will now fly to Mumbai and take
matter bat in his own hands to bring about a change in the fortune of MI.
“BCCI has given IPL teams to corporates,” the MP from Amethi said, pointing to Mumbai Indians management. “Young cricket fans of this country are feeling cheated.”
“Yeh suit-boot wale coaching staff kuch nahi kar rahe hain,” Rahul said hitting out at the illustrious list of Mumbai Indian coaches, “But I appreciate sports minister of Mumbai Indians, Mr Navjot Sidhu for being honest enough to admit on TV that Mumbai ko coach toh kya bhagwan bhi nahi bacha sakta.”
Rahul’s move had all his loyalists going gaga over him.
“Everyone knows Mumbai is mini India, with people from all over India residing here. With this one move, Rahul ji has won hearts of entire India,” said Rajiv Shukla, who is overseeing all arrangements for Rahul to play for MI.
If sources are to be believed, his trip to Kedarnath is a part of stamina building exercise for the upcoming matches that he intends to bat for MI.
Though it is still not confirmed on which position will Gandhi scion bat for MI. But one thing is certain that he won’t take the number 1 position, therefore won’t open.
“I would like Rahul Baba to take up no 1 batting position. He should lead from front. But I guess like his great grandfather, he too loves kids and doesn’t want to deny Parthiv Patel an opportunity to open. This shows his strong belief in ‘Main nahi Hum’,” Digvijay Singh explained.
The MI management too sounded upbeat about helping hand offered by Rahul.
“We are happy to have him in our side. But we hope we don’t have to go around looking for him when his turn for batting comes. Hope he won’t leave stadium to fly off to some foreign location in the middle of the match,” MI owner Nita Ambani told Faking News.
