New Delhi. After weeks of bickering, ruling Congress and opposition BJP have come together and announced a step that they believe would make things better for aam aadmi . Both the parties have decided to pass a resolution in the Parliament and change the country’s name from “India” to “Inddia”, based on numerological advice. The new name is expected to bring a new boost to the economy, and help get rid of the bad spirits that have been troubling the country. “Petrol prices, interest rates, scams, terrorism, earthquakes, Indian cricket team’s performance, or Poonam Pandey – This changed name will deal with anything that has been troubling the citizens of the nation,” a joint statement released by Congress and BJP read. Sources say that the idea was proposed by BJP’s astrological cell, which was immediately accepted by Congress core committee as the ruling party didn’t know any other way to deal with myriad of problems plaguing the nation.
