Manmohan Singh’s magical raincoat is now available for sale

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his Rajya Sabha speech, had mentioned that only Manmohan Singh – former Prime Minister who presided over arguably the most corrupt regime in independent India – knew the art of bathing while wearing a raincoat.

It was a metaphor for Manmohan Singh still being considered an honest person despite numerous scams under his watch, which was akin to someone not getting wet by water despite taking a bath.

The jibe hit the Congress party where it hurts the most (charges of corruption), and the party is now making it an issue of “insult” to the former Prime Minister. While their protests are aiming at whitewashing the scams in the real world, the ‘raincoat’ comment has now inspired various acts in the virtual world.

Someone found a video that had literal interpretation of the metaphor used by the PM:

While others reminded how Manmohan Singh was insulted in reality:

Now the fun has been taken to the next level with activist Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga offering to sell this fictional raincoat. It is now branded with the name of the former Prime Minister.

Bagga, who earlier had bought a kurta for Rahul Gandhi online, has now put Manmohan Singh Raincoat on sale online:

Manmohan Singh's raincoat
Yellow yellow, honest fellow.

Priced at a whopping 1 lakh rupees, the yellow raincoat is stated to be in “heavily used” condition.

Given such a high price, perhaps only those who benefited a lot due to the scams under Manmohan Singh can afford to buy this raincoat. And just in case you are tempted to buy it, please understand that, obviously, it’s a prank.
