The Indian political establishment is running from pillar to post to contain the effects of a new epidemic that has hit its shores. Doctors and scientists after a late night huddle informed media that confirmed cases of Foot
and In Mouth have been reported across the nation.
In a recent incident a senior ranking minister in the central govt was suddenly found ill. Health authorities are unable to explain the sudden descend of the virus. Speaking to Faking news a senior medical practitioner expressed deep concern at the state of affairs.Foot in mouth is found in cloven hoof animals although there have been numerous cases reported in infants too.
Initial media reports have indicated dogs of causing this mayhem. The ruling party has rejected these reports as baseless. They however a have set up a committee to inquire if the minister in question qualifies as an infant. Govt sources informed the media that the minister is a cow loving person and spends most of his time tending to sick cows and might have been affected by them.
Before the matter could be resolved between cows and dogs another outbreak was reported from Uttar Pradesh where another high ranking minister of the state govt was taken down by the virus. The minister in question is famous for spending quality time with his buffaloes. Confused scientists have asked for brain samples of the ministers. They suspect that infant makeup of the brain could be a strong reason of the viral outbreak.
Opposition parties have demanded prime minister to speak up on this contagious matter. The PMO in a press release indicated that the prime minister has so many feet in his mouth these days that he can barely speak.
