New Delhi. Out of the blue, BJP may have just pulled off a huge stunner in Delhi. Reports of Michelle Obama joining the Bharatiya Janta Party are coming in.
As per our sources, talks between the BJP leadership and the Obamas have been going on ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the U.S. last September. Michelle Obama will be the BJP’s chief ministerial candidate in the upcoming Delhi elections.
Looks like BJP wasn’t very confident of Kiran Bedi winning the assembly elections for them. A senior BJP leader, on the condition of anonymity, told us, “The party leadership was worried about the possibility of another hung assembly, which would cause a depreciation in the speed of propagation and energy density of the Modi wave.”
When asked why they are roping in Michelle Obama for the job rather than giving a chance to their own deserving candidates such as Shazia Ilmi, he exclaimed, “We are not content with #CheckmateAAP. We want #FlawlessVictoryBJP to trend on twitter.”
This might come as a shock to Kiran Bedi who was unavailable for a comment. Although she is not the only BJP leader unhappy with the developments. Sakshi Maharaj and his supporters have raised their voices against this move. They are reportedly unhappy with the fact that Michelle Obama has only two children, half the count required for a woman to ascertain her worth.
No AAP leader in the capital was available for a comment while the party workers were still digging the internet for the screenshots of Kiran Bedi’s deleted anti-BJP tweets. Meanwhile, the Aam Aadmi Party’s Washington unit is planning on a dharna outside the White House, demanding a probe into how Barack Obama is using the taxpayers’ money to travel to India for personal gains.
Michelle Obama joining BJP could mark the beginning of strong ties between the Democrats and the Sangh Parivar. This could also pave the way for Amit Shah’s entry into the American politics as Barack Obama’s stint as the U.S. President ends in 2016.
