New Delhi: Upset with Sports Minister Vijay Goel’s behavior in Rio, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has requested External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to airlift him out of Brazil. Sushma Swaraj has made a formidable reputation for herself bringing Indians back from Yemen, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, and now Brazil is her next challenge.
Earlier, Vijay Goel was threatened by Rio Olympics organizers that they will cancel his accreditation after repeated rude behavior by the minister and his entourage. This behavior of Vijay Goel brought a lot of embarrassment for the country and Mr. Modi has decided to rescue Indian athletes in Olympic village by airlifting Mr. Goel out of there.
“As it is the Olympic games aren’t going well for us with no medal till now. On top of that, our Sports Minister is going around with his entourage conducting himself shamefully. We simply can’t let this continue. We had hoped that Rio organizers will cancel his accreditation but they also only gave a warning. Therefore, PM has decided to interfere himself and instructed Sushma Ji to airlift him out”, a PMO official said.
Furthermore, he added,”Our ministers should know that we are above the rules only inside the country. Outside India, we aren’t likely to get any special favors. Mr. Goel’s behavior has embarrassed all the athletes as well and made them very uncomfortable. When they should be preparing for their events, they are posing for selfies with Mr. Goel and each member of his personal contingent. If you want selfies with Indian athletes then get it done at the National games na, why else do we organize them now, nobody watches them.”
As per sources in External Affairs Ministry, VK Singh has already left for Brazil and will bring Vijay Goel out during the night so that nobody notices this rescue mission.
We tried to get Mr. Vijay Goel’s reaction to this development but he was busy fighting with a guard at the aquatic stadium asking for a selfie with Michael Phelps.
