Bilawal Bhutto to undertake summer internship in Congress

09, Apr 2012 By Pagal Patrakar

Islamabad, Pakistan. Bilawal Zardari Bhutto, the 23-year-old son of Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, has been mighty impressed with his first ever tour to India, where he got to stand behind the Pakistani President and the Indian Prime Minister.

Sources say that Bilawal could soon come back to India to join an internship program with Congress, the ruling political party of India. His personal guide will be Rahul Gandhi.

“Bilawal had a chat with Rahul Gandhi during the lunch hosted by Manmohan Singh and he was very impressed with Rahul’s knowledge,” a Pakistani source told Faking News on conditions of hilarity anonymity.

Bilawal believes that there was a lot of similarity between Congress and his own party – Pakistan Peoples Party – and the internship could help him a great deal in becoming a matured politician.

“Both parties claim to follow center-left policy, both are accused of massive corruption by their respective political opponents, and political fortunes of both more or less revolve around a family,” an expert pointed out.

“With a government that is apparently afraid of the army, Bilawal could feel very much at home,” the expert added.

While refusing to say anything on record, Congress leaders have claimed that the development proved that Rahul Gandhi had matured as a politician.

“Those days are over when Rahul Gandhi himself was undergoing internship under Digvijay Singh,” a Congress leader said, “This clearly proves that he’s ready to lead the nation.”

Bilawal had earlier tweeted “much to learn from each other” after his lunch with Rahul Gandhi and Manmohan Singh, but nobody knew that he was thinking about internship.

“But what will he learn? Will he go back and grow a beard? Will he have dinner with a poor Muhazir family? Or will he go back and tear apart Imran Khan’s speech copy?” an expert wondered.
