With very little details of the swearing in ceremony available, Faking News has painstakingly managed to get a very interesting piece of update from BJP sources. It’s learnt that Mani Shankar Aiyar would be putting up a tea stall at the Rashtrapati Bhavan forecourt as a part of Narendra Modi’s swearing in ceremony.
Earlier this year at the Congress conclave Mr. Mani Shankar Aiyar had made the following statement on Modi’s Prime Ministerial ambitions.
“There is no way he can be Prime Minister in the 21st century, but if he wants to come and distribute tea here we can make some room for him.”
In what is seen as a reversal of roles, Mani Shankar Aiyar who lost the recent general elections has decided to do a bottom up approach and try his hand at distributing tea and work his way up, to the post of the PM. Mr. Mani Shankar Aiyar himself would be distributing the tea cups to each of the more than 3000 dignitaries at the ceremony.
Sources in the Congress though said, no matter how hard Mr. Mani Shankar Aiyar tries there is no way he could pip Rahul Gandhi as their PM candidate. When contacted Mr. Mani Shankar Aiyar dismissed the hype over the whole event as a storm in a teacup.
