In a sensational development that can have far–reaching repercussions, Arvind Kejriwal has been reported to have stormed out of a shop selling men’s innerwear when the shopkeeper showed him underwears with VIP written on them.
Faking News got in touch with Kumar Vishwas who was with Kejriwal on this ‘undercover’ mission. This is what he had to say – “Arvindji had been managing with the same five underwears he bought during the fast by Anna Hazare ji in late 2012. Most of them now have holes bigger than the ones in Rahul Gandhi’s brains. We had gone to a shop in Connaught Place to resolve this long-standing issue. But I guess Congress got a wind of our plans and bribed the shopkeeper to show us underwears with VIP written on them. In fact Arvindji even liked one with yellow stars in red background but I pointed out the tiny ‘VIP’ printed on the side. Had Arvindji bought it, Congress would have carried out a sting operation on him when went to the restroom and gained political mileage. But we are smarter than that.”
Added Prashant Bhushan, one of the party leaders of AAP, who SMSed us the statement below as he couldn’t call us because he had run out of Skype credits.
‘Arvind ji represents the aam aadmi. There is nothing VIP about him including his underwear. Period.’
Faking News caught up with Tanuj Khosla, its in-house expert on such issues. “I am not surprised by this action of Mr. Kejriwal” said Tanuj while sprinkling his caramel custard with red chilli powder, “I was on the same flight as him a few months ago and he carried his belongings in a stinky ghatri because most suitcases in the market have VIP written on them. In fact AAP has internally decided that no person with the word ‘VIP’ in his name shall be allowed to become member of the party. Two of my good friends – Vipul & Vipin got rejected because of this very reason. There is no telling how far this repulsion to ‘VIP’ by AAP shall go.”
