If Looney Tunes and Tazzos are still alive in the Indian political sphere, thanks to trolls and memes that cite the immaturity and puerile behavior of Mr. Rahul Gandhi aka Pappu of India (if you don’t trust us,search Google)

The 44-year old politician has gained immense popularity not due to his political acumen but for his frivolity and “Amul Baby” demeanor.  The recent photo that went viral on the social media shows Mr. Gandhi holding white sheets of paper scribbled with bullet points in capital letters. And he was holding this ‘cheat-sheet’ or to say furre while arguing over the Lalit Modi row against Sushma Swaraj and even used those points in the same way as they were written.

 

With a history of mondegreens and half-baked proclamations, Rahul Gandhi hasn’t really given up.  He challenges trending-rahul-gandhi-jokes-53202bc4baff0the “suit-boot ki sarkar” and wishes to replace it by “kurta-pyjama aur chappal ki sarkar“. As if, the white linen would guarantee a cleaner government–white clothes,hence a whiter government. Probably, his donning of a white kurta at almost every occasion roots from this reason. Moreover, the hypocrisy of such statements is that Rahul Gandhi belongs to a dynasty which is known for its “suit-boot” status and inherited wealth instead of earned wealth.

Gandhi believes that “poverty is a state of mind.It does not mean scarcity of food, money or material things. If one possesses self-confidence then we can overcome poverty.”  When statements like these come from the Vice-president of Congress, one ought to hurl the BPL (Below Poverty Line) statistics on him.

318The infantalization of this man has become an issue of comic interest so much so that, none of his face expressions are spared and instantly transformed into memes. His broad rueful smile even at occasions which don’t require it, is yet another example of his fatuous mindset.

And when it comes to his commendable general knowledge, Rahul Gandhi can face no competition. The Gandhi scion claims that India is bigger than US and Europe put together.  And his quotes such as-“I am not averse to politics, but that does not mean that I am going to join politics”  is made when he’s a politician born in a political milieu and breathes as a Vice-president of Congress.

 

The Congress politician is usually accompanied with his mother,which has resulted into various comic trolls about him being a ‘mamma’s boy’ or accused by BJP politicians for not growing out his diaper years.

44 years and counting, Rahul Gandhi is eternally young and spirited when it comes to rallies and taking small lunch outings with farmers and their families. If he is the future face of India, then kindly declare a STATE of EMERGENCY as soon as possible.

Congress To Use Tribal Card to Regain Power in the Country

Congress to use tribal card to improve countrywide position

In order to regain dominance in the country, the Congress is mulling using the tribal card. This plan of action is to be first implemented in Chhattisgarh.

Riding on the success of the Assembly and urban body elections, the Congress feels that it can increase it base through tribals as they constitute 8 per cent of the total population.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the first three Assembly elections in the state, after its formation in 2000, recorded huge victories and came to power. But after the Assembly elections held last year, the scenario changed. After registering a victory in the Assembly elections and then in the urban body polls, the Congress showed that it still dominates the tribal areas.

The Congress gave the responsibility of the tribal areas to the tribal leader of Madhya Pradesh Umang Singhar which eventually helped the party. Now, the party is planning to spread out nationwide through Chhattisgarh.

Former party president Rahul Gandhi, while inaugurating the National Tribal Dance Festival in Raipur, gave a message to the tribals who are here to participate in the festival that the Chhattisgarh government is working for all the sections and this is the reason why there has been a downward trend in naxal attacks and the state economy has also improved.

The Congress is planning to publicise the improvements in Chhattisgarh throughout the country because the tribal population in the state is 32 per cent.

BJP media panellist Sandeep Sharma, however, claims that the party’s base has not shrunk. He said till Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh were not divided, the Congress was strong in the area but in the elections held after three years of the bifurcation, the BJP won the Assembly elections and was in power for 15 years. Though we faced defeat in the 2018 elections, the only reason was that people wanted a change but they were not angry with the BJP, he claimed.

The BJP won in the Lok Sabha elections and the margin in the urban body elections was also not much. So, it would be inappropriate to say that the BJP’s base has shrunk, he said adding that in one year the Congress’ base has declined by 9 per cent whereas in Assembly elections it got 12 per cent more votes and in urban body elections the margin was 3 per cent.

Analysing the political landscape of the state, political analyst Rudra Awasthi said, “When it was Madhya Pradesh then the Congress had stronghold in Chhattisgarh. Several big leaders were also from the state but after the formation of Chhattisgarh since Ajit Jogi was accused of being a fake tribal the Congress lost its stronghold over the tribals. Though it continued to dominate in some of the areas which helped it in regaining the power.

“As of now, the Congress has started including the tribals with the backward class. First Bhupesh Baghel was the state chief of the party and he was replaced by Mohan Markam as he became the Chief Minister. During the Assembly elections, the Congress talked about the identity of the tribals which helped the party. After winning the elections, the decisions of the Congress government were in favour of the tribals which helped the party in the urban body elections,” said Awasthi.

The Congress is mulling over spreading its message to the tribals across the country through the three-day festival going on here. For this several senior leaders of the party will attend the festival and share the government’s schemes while giving the message that the Congress government in the state has brought a positive and a significant change in the lives of the tribals.
