Arnaldo Chamorro was replaced as chief of staff for Paraguay’s agriculture ministry, on Wednesday, by Luis Miguel Paredes Vega, shortly after it was revealed that he signed ‘proclamation’ with representatives of the United States of Kailasa, a memorandum of understanding with representatives of a fugitive Indian guru’s fictional country, who also appear to have duped several other officials in the South American country.
On Kailasa’s website, the fictional country is described as the “revival of the ancient, enlightened Hindu civilizational nation which is being revived by displaced Hindus from around the world.” This alleged country, led by a self-styled guru, Nithyananda, is wanted in India on several charges, including sexual assault.
Unfortunately, his whereabouts are unknown.
On October 16, among other things, the “proclamation” expressed a “sincere wish and recommendation for the government of Paraguay to consider, explore and actively seek the establishment of diplomatic relations with the United States of Kailasa and support the admission of the United States of Kailasa as a sovereign and independent state in various international organizations, including, among others, the United Nations”, according to a copy of the agreement posted on social media.
Representatives of the fictional country met with Chamorro and the agriculture minister, Carlos Giménez, Chamorro said in a radio interview.
The former chief recognized he did not know where Kailasa was located during the interview and acknowledged that he signed what he characterized as a “memorandum of understanding” because they offered to help Paraguay with a variety of issues, including irrigation.
The revelation sparked a huge scandal, an embarrassing situation which included lots of social media mockery and taunting, in Paraguay but it is hardly the first-time self-described representatives of the United States of Kailasa duped international leaders.
Similarly, earlier this year, they managed to participate in a UN committee meeting in Geneva and signed agreements with local leaders in the United States and Canada.
Kailasa’s social media accounts posted photos which showed representatives of the fictional country signing agreements with local leaders of the María Antonia and Karpai municipalities. The social media account celebrated each of these signings.
According to media reports, representatives of the United States of Kailasa participated in two UN committee meetings in Geneva in February.
Also, in March, Newark city hall, in New Jersey, acknowledged it had been swindled when it signed a sister city agreement with Kailasa, meaning the leader of Paraguay has been humiliated.
