New Delhi. The list of people listed as directors in companies that controlled shares in Nitin Gadkari’s Purti Power and Sugar Limited is getting weird and weird. After real people like Gadkari’s driver, cook, astrologer, accountant, now it’s the turn of fake people listed as directors.
One of such fake people is an imaginary son of ND Tiwari.
“The documents accessed from the Registrar of Companies show a certain ‘Satyanarayan Dutt Tiwari’ as director of one of the companies,” a source told Faking News, “Father’s name of this Satyanarayan is given as ‘ND Tiwari’ and permanent address is mentioned as ‘Bedroom, Raj Bhavan’ – which clearly indicates that it referred to the Congress leader ND Tiwari.”
Faking News reporter tried to locate this “Satyanarayan Dutt Tiwari” but we gave up after five minutes of extensive investigative journalism i.e. Google search, and we concluded that it indeed was an imaginary character.
“I think this was the smartest move by Gadkari and he should have shown only imaginary sons of ND Tiwari as directors in his company,” Om Prakash, an expert on everything argued, “People listed as directors in his companies have no idea that they have such position, so in essence they are imaginary. So why not have ‘genuinely’ imaginary directors?”
“Also, if someone accuses Gadkari of forgery for having shown an allegedly imaginary person on legal papers, he can reasonably challenge the accuser to disprove that no such son of ND Tiwari exists,” Om added, “And you know, this is almost impossible.”
However, not everyone agrees.
“Dude, this is dangerous,” another expert told Faking News, “If such a son of Tiwari actually exists, and there is every possibility, he’d fight for his rights unlike those drivers and cooks of Gadkari!”
While experts are busy debating whether Gadkari was smart or dumb to have indulged in such chicanery, Arvind Kejriwal has claimed that this again proved that Congress and BJP were two sides of the same coin.
“Congress would have done their best to hide the sons of ND Tiwari, which could have helped Gadkari hide the directors of his company. You don’t need a bigger proof,” Kejriwal said.
