Joker in the pack

leave a comment »

In many games, the joker in a pack of cards can stand in for any other card. Mr. Krishna made such a move at the UN, as ET reports:

A day after he inadvertently read out bits of the Portuguese Foreign Minister’s speech at a Security Council debate, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna today said that these things happen because many of these speeches make the same initial points.

“There was nothing wrong in it,” Krishna said, adding “there were so many papers spread infront of me so by mistake the wrong speech was taken out.”

But to read out the wroong speech for 3 minutes!

The BJP, unusually, made a valid point, as DNA reports.

BJP today said the faux pas by external affairs minister S M Krishna at the UN Security Council was bound to happen as the country had leaders who “read speeches rather than deliver them.”

“This is bound to happen when we have people who read speeches rather then deliver them,” BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said here.
