President Barack Obama is a 21-year-old resident of Nalgonda in Andhra Pradesh. In a telling laxity of the telecom service providers in granting telephone connections to all and sundry without proper verification, a Nalgonda resident by the name of M Prasad secured a cellphone connection with the number 9177523297 by passing off the photograph of the US President as his.

1st : Its Airtel2nd : Ye hai India meri Jaan ;)BTW yesterday Airtel confirmed that they had never activated that number and form is lying uselessly at their local office. Might be they were waiting for TOI to search this unusual form and publish. OR may be airtel themselves planned this news :p
