Union Information and Broadcasting Minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday said that filmmaker SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion”, which is breaking records at the Indian box office, is a shining example of the ‘Make in India’ campaign, but he again dint include a single acronym in his speech. This is the 5th day on a trot when he has done so and that leaves the nation concerned.
M Venkaiah Naidu who is known for his catchphrases has given plenty of names for government schemes and other relevant entities. He proudly proclaimed that the country’s mission is MODI — Making Of a Developed India. Earlier, the minister had called the Prime Minister Modifier Of Developing India (Modi). There is also a parody account on twitter. The profile came into existence as recently as March, it makes reverse acronyms of names of political leaders, including Mr Naidu. Their Twitter bio spells out “NAIDU” as “National Acronym Innovation & Design University”
In fact the nation has been thinking that this is the sole job of Naidu in the cabinet. He has been given the task of spreading awareness about the government schemes and party leaders through the interesting medium of creating acronyms. And Mr. Naidu is very good at it. His opposition colleagues are also very interested while he rolls out acronym after acronyms. But, now that he has not produced or coined a new term in the last 5 days, the citizens are concerned. Most of them feel that the government has not launched any new scheme in the last few days.
There are rumors that PM Modi did call up Venkaiah ji as recently as yesterday and asked him to speed up the roll out of new acronyms. He has even suggested the minister to take help of college students on social media platform to come up with interesting suggestions. We all credit Venkaiah ji to simplify the government schemes for a common man to understand, but he will have to do it on a consistent basis.
