New Delhi: Parliament was adjourned sine-die today after an MP (name withheld to protect identity of the party which faced worst ever defeat in history on 2014 general elections), was caught writing his own name on all secret santa gifts that were kept in the Parliament store house.
Sources say that chaotic scenes were witnessed after both ruling and opposition party MPs entered the well of the house and traded charges against each other.
Speaking to Faming News, Parliament speaker said, “We had kept all the secret santa gifts in the Parliament store house with post-it stuck to it having names of MPs. My suspicion was raised after an MP, who went for a bathroom break, did not return for a long time. I asked the house for his whereabouts. That’s when commotion was heard from the store room and it was reported that an MP was writing his own name on all the gifts.”
Apparently, there were complaints against the MP on previous occasions too.
Rakesh Sharma, who is in charge of a shelter for homeless kids said, “We had asked him to play the part of Santa Claus for homeless children and get them some gifts. But we realized that after he left our shelter, these were items missing from our office and the clothes and toys he got for the kids were also stolen.”
Home Minister Rajnath Singh condemned the act and said that at a time when Parliament has only seen ruckus and adjournments, such gift sharing among MPs will bring them together and also ensure that there is full attendance on at least a single day in the Parliament.
There is no news if any action will be initiated against the accused MP. “We were planning to suspend him for rest of the sessions. But that will work in his favor and anyway most session have been adjourned,” said Mallikarjun Kharge.
Meanwhile, Delihi CM Arvind Kejriwal once again used this opportunity to target both Congress and BJP.
“This is against the spirit of the festival. Christmas is all about giving and that is why it is very hard for these MPs to become secret santa,” he said as he got ready to discuss important issues related to New Years party plans with Ashutosh and Kumar Vishwas.
