Today world saw a new side of Rahul Gandhi. Since he is a shy politician and avoids publicity, his PR was instructed not to blow the incident out of proportion. But somehow this incident has come to light and everybody is talking about it. Obviously, Rahul Gandhi is livid and has decided to fire his PR for this gaffe.

In a nutshell, the much talked about story goes like this. A young boy knocks at the window of a car in which Rahul Baba is travelling. It turns out that the young boy wants to sell Rahul Baba a newspaper. Though Rahul Baba has already read all the dailies of the day on his mini iPad, he doesn’t want to disappoint the young boy and buys a paper from him. Rahul Baba pays him 1000 rupees for a single newspaper after inquiring as to why he was not at school.

This is the story being peddled by the PR chaps hired by RG Baba. The whole world seems to have lapped it up without doubt. But insiders are miffed at what is being told to the people. The real story is totally different. All of a sudden the AC of Rahul Baba’s car broke down. Now this is the summer season. Unfortunately, the support staff had forgotten to carry tissues with which Rahul Baba could wipe his sweat beads on forehead. Suddenly, they saw this boy selling newspapers at the traffic signal.

The support staff approached the boy and purchased all his newspapers for one thousand rupees. They took those papers with the sole intention of converting them into tissues for Rahul Baba. The overzealous PR managers saw some opportunity to market the generous side of RG in this incident and rolled out a narrative depicting RG as the messiah of boys across the country selling newspapers at traffic signals.

Soon this story found many takers much to the delight of PR guys. But their joy proved to be short-lived, and; alarm bells began to ring when the news that the crew of a foreign news channel was looking for this newspaper boy for an interview reached the PR chaps. They pressed the panic button and came out with the story of this boy having been picked up for education, and; hence unavailable to appear before media.

According to sources close to Rahul Gandhi, the ministers are unhappy with these turns of the events. They know that the end is nigh and the last days in the office ought to be spent plundering the national wealth. There is no time left for them to provide education to the boy hand-picked by Baba at a traffic signal let alone arrange employment for lucky boy’s beleaguered father whose dream is to become a doctor when he grows up.

The railways minister Mr. Pawan Bansal is the latest example of how government is effectively implementing poverty eradication programme. The opposition is asking for his resignation. Why? Because it is alleged that Mr. Bansal’s nephew accepted a bribe for recruiting top official/s in railways. How can we make uncle pay for the alleged sins of his nephew? As such CBI is overburdened with work load. Shouldn’t we spare a thought for hapless CBI before tossing every case of rape, murder and bribery into its overflowing basket?

Government is busy fire fighting on many fronts right from Sarabjit Singh’s ghastly murder in a Pak jail to Chinese intrusion into our territory. Amidst all this ha ha hoopla, where does it have time to sack Mr. Bansal whose life long dream is to eradicate poverty for all his generations to come after him? Let’s assume for a moment that PM cracks his whip and Mr. Bansal finds himself out, where would the suitable replacement for such an able minister come from?

Now almost all the leaders have successfully eradicated poverty for their next generations. Nobody will show willingness to step into his large shoes that will be difficult to fill for obvious reasons. Government is well aware of this challenge that may arise following unceremonious sacking of Mr. Bansal who is a complete family man as far as the Indian tradition is concerned.

People of this country have heard of minister helping their brothers and sons and daughters in their endeavour to eradicate poverty. But Mr. Bansal has gone one step ahead by extending support to his nephew. The last thing such an honourable man deserves is receive a red slip from his masters.

On the contrary, the more accolades we give, the less they will be for such a man of impeccable integrity. Mr. Bansal has done one more remarkable thing for which he has come in for praise from all the leaders cutting across party lines. That is when protesters demanding his resignation outside his residence were baking in the sun, he ordered cold showers on them so that they could brave the blazing sun and continue protest unabated.

Does such a caring man deserve the sack? How thoughtful of him. In fact, here’s a man who should be invited to Wharton to give lecture on how to successfully eradicate poverty in less than a year and ensure enormous wealth for generations to come. Our PM can spot the hidden talent and persist with it in a bid to brazen it out no matter what the opposition demands.

When country is ruled and run by such merchants of coals and 2G spectrum, it is the people of this country who should master the art of brazening it out. Government’s juggernaut ought to continue to roll and nobody should throw spanner. Whoever dares do so will only increase the workload of CBI. PM won’t step down. Ministers implementing poverty eradication programmes won’t call it quits. The status quo will continue till the day of reckoning after a year.
