Budget 2012: Rakhi Sawant praises FM Pranab Mukherjee

The item gal shocks parliamentarians with a surprise visit, but has only positive things to say about them

The upcoming Union Budget 2012 may have all taxpaying Indians wary about their financial future but that didn’t stop our very own Rakhi Sawant from using the opportunity to garner some more publicity for herself. The item girl caused a stir when landed up unexpectedly at Parliament today (March 13) at the start of the Budget session. She admitted that she was not invited by any politician. “I just came to meet the MPs. I’ve come to see Parliament, to see how it works and how our leaders are working.” A surprise check! Wow! She also said, “I am here to know the Budget. I want to see how leaders are working. I want to request Sonia Gandhi that there should be something for the women too.”

Unlike her usual style of criticising national events, Rakhi had only positive things to say this time around. Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, the key individual behind the Budget, was at the receiving end of her praise. “I have full confidence that Pranab Mukherjee would make a good Budget,” she said. She added that yoga guru Baba Ramdev, whom she had once said she wished to wed, should “do yoga and keep quiet.” A case of sour grapes, perhaps? He did turn her down, remember?

However self-serving Rakhi’s motivation behind the visit maybe, you can’t deny that she has done what every tax payer dreams of doing – meeting their elected representatives and putting their wishes forward. The girl sure has guts!
