New Delhi: As Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal asserted his position on the issue of appointment of Chief Secretary and requested a meeting with Mr. President, Rashtrapati Bhavan witnessed some uneasy moments last night. Although Pranab Mukherjee had already consulted Solicitor General on the issue and was assured that he can back LG Najeeb Jung, Prez was worried what if Delhi CM gets pissed off and starts raising questions on President’s appointment itself.
Shaitaan Khopdi™, Faking News reporter, luckily got once in a lifetime opportunity to have an audience with Honorable President and didn’t miss the chance to discuss the matter with him.
Shaitaan Khopdi™: Pranab da, I heard that you were feeling uneasy last night. All well? These are not the good times ‘Piku-liarly’ for Bangalis living in Delhi eh?
Pranab Mukherjee: Nothing much, was checking the voting results of my Presidential election in 2012. Just to be sure you know.
Shaitaan Khopdi™: But that was 3 year back. You are already half way through!!!
Pranab Mukherjee: The way Kejriwal is quoting rules and laws over the appointment of Chief Secretary, I was worried what if he challenges my appointment itself. I just wanted to be sure that nothing is wrong with my position before giving Gyan to him on constitutional matters.
Shaitaan Khopdi™: But you won fair and square. How can somebody dispute it?
Pranab Mukherjee: You never know. They even raised doubts over PM Modi’s win in Varanasi, attributing it to 3.5 Lakh fake votes.
Shaitaan Khopdi™: At least on legal matters you should have an upper hand especially when the Chief Justice of India himself reports to you.
Pranab Mukherjee: Not anymore. Actually it’s all my mistake yaar!!! Last time when he came over, I gifted him a copy of Indian Constitution. Like a true engineer he mugged up every line of it during his 9 days of Naturopathy in Bangalore. By now he knows constitution of India by heart. That’s why he kicked out Prashant Bhushan soon after coming from Bangalore.
As the president had a busy day ahead, Shaitaan Khopdi™ finished the interview and wished him good luck for the meeting with CM Kejriwal.
Before getting elected with bumper majority in Delhi, AAP had promised to teach a new type of politics to the older parties. Promises of free Wi-Fi and CCTV may take time but going by the proceedings in Delhi in last few days it is clear that AAP have been able to fulfill this promise at least.
