New Delhi: Latching on to an article about the absence of Union Minister Arun Jaitley and Secretary Hasmukh Adhia from the Finance Ministry at the same time, INC chief Rahul Gandhi today took a dig at the government with a mock letter to the minister by the prime minister.

Rahul Gandhi’s note on Twitter — addressed to the “FM” and signed off by the “Prime Minister” — said it had been decided that the ministry would be shut till further notice.

According to the article that Rahul Gandhi posted along with his tweet, Jaitley has not attended office for a month because of a kidney ailment. The article claimed Adhia has taken leave till 20 May to do yoga and meditation with Swami Visharadanand Saraswathy in Mysuru.

The absence of the two effectively left the ministry headless, the piece added.

Dear FM, as you are indisposed and Finance Secretary is on vacation with his Guru on a quest for inner peace, I have decided to shut the Finance Ministry till further notice,” Gandhi’s tweet said.

The PMO will take all financial policy decisions as before. Prime Minister,” he wrote.

 

Expenditure secretary A N Jha is expected to officiate in Adhia’s absence, the article masquerading as a report said.

The News Central 24 x 7 article carries the byline of Swati Chaturvedi. It reads:

“The absence of the finance ministry’s Top Two will effectively leave it headless. Their absence raises serious questions about who is minding the ship and fundamental governance of the Modi government.”

“While Modi keeps harping on good governance, keeping the Finance Ministry headless—especially after the contentious and troubled roll-out of the Goods and Services tax (GST), the ever-unfolding Rs 13,000 crore Nirav Modi Ponzi scam in PNB, the second largest state-owned bank, the ICICI bank’s Chanda Kochhar’s name cropping up in the Videocon scam, the unleashing of the tax inspector raj by the Finance Ministry, zero growth in exports in the past four years, and the still lingering effects of the suicidal demonetisation—is likely to paint a very troubled picture in the general election season.”

Chaturvedi is a much-followed and trolled pro-Congress journalist on Twitter, who had become a subject of many an article in 2016 because of her book I Am A Troll that targeted supporters of the BJP for trolling while sparing the trolls of the INC and AAP. The book was broadly based on an account of a certain Sadhvi Khosla who had deserted the INC to join the BJP only to dump the latter too.
