PM’s revelation : “Nuclear deal just an in-parliament joke. There never was any deal to start-with!”

New Delhi. 9th February.

In a candid revelation to CBS News’ popular prime-time show CBS 60-minutes, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh sent shock-waves across the world by admitting that “There never was any Nuclear deal, or even the faintest talks of it in real sense, with America. It was just an in-parliament joke started by Congress-chief Sonia Gandhi, who jumbled up America, KFC, bird-flu, and H5N1 (virus) to accidentally ask – ‘Is America supplying us N-virus?’

The rest, as Singh says, is history with a little bit of diplomacy, media-frenzy, left-wing politics and Indian congress’ jest thrown in. Almost choking with laughter and nostalgia, Manmohan Singh said – “We initially enjoyed the media-hype it generated; and even the tug-of-war with Left front was great, except that we were pulling a non-existent rope there.” On being asked that how did they buy American-side into this farce and Singh winks playfully, adding – “We were never needed to! George Bush just believed what was being printed in the Indian newspapers.”

Reacting strongly to Manmohan Singh’s bombshell, George Bush told the world media to “Take light!”, as he always knew that he was “being taken on a punctured-pony ride” and hence, he never signed any document as ‘George Bush’. “I mis-spelled it as Goerge Bush, deliberately”, American President emphasized.

Meanwhile, the Indian left front was quick to condemn this “latest act of betrayal” by their UPA allies, and immediately called for a “Bandh in West Bengal, Kerala and China Bazaars all over India.”

  2. HMT: Hail Manmohan’s Timing?

    New Delhi: In what could be one of the most embarrassing episodes of his tenure as the Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh’s PMO today released a press statement saying that his old HMT wrist watch was to blame for the trouble about the recent 123-Nuclear Deal between the US and India.
    The press release says: “Dr. Singh has had a special relationship with his HMT watch since his school-days as winding the watch manually and then seeing the time change second-by-second was his favorite (and only) pastime back then.”

    [Editor’s Note: It is an inspiring urban legend today how young Mannu (as he was fondly called by his class-mates) used to get easily confused by the difference between ‘Italy’ & ‘Sicily’ and ‘family legacy’ & ‘complete lunacy’ – apparently, the only two criteria used by Congress Chairperson Sonia Gandhi to select the nation’s Prime Minister in 2004! Hence in a TZP-istic beginning, Mannu’s only best friend was his HMT watch that had serendipitously fallen off the teacher’s wrist one day into his shirt pocket when Mannu was getting his daily dose of scolding for not doing… well any damn thing!]

    The releases continues: “What recently happened was that his watch mysteriously stopped exactly at 00:00:00 one night in 2006 while he was asleep and on waking up he was astonished to see only one hand in the watch! The tremendous work-load as PM soon made him completely forget about the issue and he went ahead with blunders like the 123 Deal. It is indeed frightening to note in hindsight that for more than a year now the Government of India was being run by a Sardar in permanent 12 o’clock mode…”
    PTI reports that the Supreme Court has also taken strict notice of the issue while reacting to a Public Interest Litigation filed by the Swatch Group and has asked the Central Bureau of Investigation to permanently paste three watch hands (in 10:10:35) position on the glass of the wrist watch in focus to prevent a repeat of the situation.

  3. @ Biny: Good one! 😀

    Wonder why didn’t Manmohan get ‘Head & Shoulders’ instead, given that he is the shoulder of the government and Soniaji is the actual head… ;P
