New Delhi. If sources are to be believed, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been tipped to get a Cabinet minister berth in Modi’s government. The sensational revelation has left left many on both side of Indo-Pak border scratching their head.
Reacting sharply to the news, BJP’s key ally Shiv Sena’s chief Uddhav Thackeray, who was, according to sources, demanding a few more cabinet berths for his own MPs, said, “Now I know why Nawaz came to India despite facing criticism in his own country. Frustrated of regular arm twisting by Pakistan army, he was looking for a better job opportunity. But we will not allow an outsider to take away job opportunities from locals!”
On being reminded that the news had come only from “sources” and was not yet confirmed by any authority, Uddhav calmed down. However, sources say that Shiv Sena is planning to withdraw support from the BJP government.
While the Indian news channels were frenetically trying to contact these “sources” that were giving exclusive news to Faking News, BJP supporters were busy trying to justify the incident if sources turn out to be correct.
“I guess Modi Ji has started the process of capturing Pakistan. Prime Minister of Pakistan is now just a minister in India!” tweeted a Modi fan.
On the other hand, capitalizing on the confusion created by sources, Congress has accused Modi of compromising on national security.
“My Doordarshan sources say that Modi will himself become a minister in the Obama government,” Congress leader Digvijay Singh lashed out at BJP.
Sources further suggest that this whole idea of Nawaz Sharif getting a place in Modi cabinet could be per-determined. Reportedly, Pakistan Army is planning another coup and this was all done to give an honorable exit to Nawaz Sharif. Sources in Pakistan confirm this.
Meanwhile back in India, after Faking News refused to divulge its sources, Indian news channels have started speculating which department could Nawaz Sharif be offered by Modi.
“Most likely he is going to get Defense Ministry, as he knows everything about Pakistan,” an expert on a national TV channel claimed. The expert further claimed that sources could be right as he could read the body language of Nawaz Sharif, which showed he was confident of getting a cabinet berth.
Meanwhile, our sources have confirmed that Nawaz Sharif had accepted the offer and will be soon taking charge as the Union Minister of Sources.
