Congress believes that this step will create a wave of happiness and confidence in the country and help the party sweep the next elections.

“Nothing was working. Be it so-called reforms or credit policies announced by the RBI. Rupee and Markets were going down and it looked like 1991 kind of situation could arise again. So the best that we could think of was to do some major reshuffle at the top,” a party source confirmed the changes, being termed as “reforms”, to Faking News.

As a result, the Chief Economic Advisor was made the RBI governor, the Prime Minister was made the Chief Economic Advisor, and Rahul Gandhi was made the Prime Minister.

“We couldn’t have made Subbarao (the outgoing RBI governor) the Prime Minister!” the source said when Faking News asked why Rahul Gandhi was picked up in this reshuffle that sounded like musical chairs.

Party insiders say that with Rahul Gandhi as Prime Minister, the party cadre will get rejuvenated and with Manmohan Singh as Economic Advisor, any failure on economic front could be blamed on Dr. Singh.

“We can’t do better, now the GDP should grow,” the party source claimed.
