It’s the season of the Aam Aadmi and everyone seems to be keen on cashing in by associating with humble professions. While Arvind Kejriwal is busy boasting the mango people aam aadmi look, Narendra Modi is wooing the tea vendors. And if sources are to be believed, MS Dhoni has joined the bandwagon too by deliberately bringing in the laundrymen to clean up a deep mess created by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President N Srinivasan.
“We will try the laundry, that’s good, will keep us clean,” Dhoni had said when asked about cleaning the dirt around the BCCI and the Indian Premier League (IPL). However, Arun Pandeyji from Prihti (Rhiti) who manages Dhoni said that the Indian skipper wanted to promote a friend’s laundry service in Jharkhand and deliberately chose the profession. “We have seen how much advantage one can get to become a PM if you happen to be a tea vendor, so associating with a laundryman can help in cleaning the best of scams.”
The Rashtriya Laundry Sangh have applauded Dhoni for considering them privileged enough to clean up the mess created by men at luxurious positions. ”We are even considering opening ’30-minute Taint-free service.’ where politicians and cricket administrators can get the worst of taint removed in 30 minutes.’
After the latest wise comment from Dhoni, the brands are trying to cash in quicktime. Liwhirpool, a famous washing machine brand has approached Dhoni to endorse their product. “This is going to be a huge boost for our brand and we’ll look to make the most of it. We are even looking to rope in N Srinivasan, as he is the epitome of cleaning himself up from any taint,” said Ravikanth Peiyappan, vice-president of Maytag corporation, the company which owns Liwhirpool.
