Zardari bags Mayawathi

Pakistan’s lame duck president Asif Ali Zardari has won the first ever Mayawathi award for governance. This was announced by the Indian government in a post published on the official blog of the Union Ministry of External affairs on Thursday.

“With his exceptionally low governance skills, narcissistic tendencies and lack of concern for public welfare have all resulted in Mr. Zardari bagging the award that symbolizes everything that’s wrong with politicians,” the post said. Mayawathi award, named after the current UP CM is offered to top politicians who have been found wanting in the areas cited in the post.

“The next thing you will see is statues of Zardari at various places in Pakistan. I am sure this guy will transform into another Mayawathi soon, if he isn’t one already. Just look at the way he is ruining his country,” a senior external affairs ministry spokesperson told this blogger over a casual conversation over Skype.
The UP CM will hand over the award to Zardari sometime in August. Zardari has meanwhile expressed his happiness over being selected for the award. The award carries a check for Rs. 10, a plaque and a bronze replica of something that you should see in the pic posted with this piece.
