New Delhi: Having a dig at Law Minister Salman
Khurshid for claiming "all is well" in the wake of the
controversial 2G note, BJP veteran L K Advani on Saturday referred
to Aamir Khan`s recent movie, asking if that is so then "who
are the 3 idiots" in the government.
`All is well` was a hit song in Khan`s film `3 Idiots`.
Khurshid had responded "all is well" when questioned
about reports of a rift between senior Cabinet ministers
Pranab Mukherjee and P Chidambaram following the Finance
Ministry note which suggested that Chidambaram, the finance minister in 2008, could have averted the 2G scam had he
insisted on auction of spectrum.
"If all is well with the government, who are its three
idiots?" asked Advani.
"The reference to 3 Idiots was purely anecdotal and
sought to highlight the state of disarray in the UPA," a
senior BJP leader said quoting Advani.
Advani later said no one needed to guess who those three
idiots were, as all knew about them.
