Even Pranab gets unwanted calls from loan cos

Don`t fret. Even Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee is not immune to unsolicited calls from loan companies.



Pranab Mukherjee is not immune to unsolicited calls from loan
companies.

On Monday morning, when Mukherjee was having intense
discussions to break the price rise logjam with Leader of
Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj, her counterpart in
Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley and other leaders, he got a call on
his mobile.

Those present at the meeting said Mukherjee asked his
aides to hand him the mobile, thinking it must be an important
call.

However, the short-tempered leader made a face and told
the caller, "No, no. Not now. I am in a meeting."

Visibly angry, he handed over his mobile to Minister of
State for Parliamentary Affairs V Narayansamy.

When others asked who had called, an embarrassed
Mukherjee said it was one of the finance companies which had
called to offer him a home loan.

He then said he gets four-five such calls everyday.

A few months ago, RIL Chief and India`s richest man
Mukesh Ambani had got a similar call from a finance company
offering him a home loan.

Some MPs complained that these calls are a regular
feature despite subscribing to the "Do Not Call (DND)"
service, forcing them to renew the service every month.
