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.

It is too disgusting that Shiv Sena is aiming for something which was nothing but an act of betrayal. Here the principles and ethos of the party are just sacrificed. The “chair” of Chief Minister is what the individual parties in Maharashtra are wanting so badly. And for this only Shiv Sena has severed its ties with its all-time ally BJP which emerged with the largest number of MLAs. Is it not the BJP with which Sena made the alliance before the election? Why so much bitter feelings after the poll result? Many past elections were fought on this mutual understanding. Sena had always taken pride and bragged about its power and clout as because the BJP was behind it. But now very contrary equation and chemistry are on display. NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena are sharing the ideas as opposed to the expectation of the whole electorate.

Democracy
Politics in India might lead to a sinking democracy.

One believes it’s Congress and its High common which Shiv Sena Supremo Late Bal Thackeray always disliked and ruthlessly held them up to ridicule. It was because they hold the opposing ideologies. But now his son Uddhav Thackeray kneeled down and sought the helping hand of those rival camps to walk the party through for the chair of Chief Minister. Going by the flood of comments on the social media, this party has ostensibly fallen from the grace. BJP is not a holy cow either. It is equally good at flexes its muscles for the power.

While Maharashtra is already under the president rule, the NCP and Congress now exploring all possible means to back Shiv Sena.   Uddhav Thackeray only wants to see his son Aditya Thackeray being the Chief Minister of one of the riches states in the country. The trend is not at all healthy. Here everything is utterly clear that the cherished values of democracy in India are fast eroding. Majority of the states in the country, only the “particularly families” are  always standing up to rule the roost. This is a bigger threat to the fundamental values of the country.The NATION is no more controlled by the government of the people, nor is it for the people. It is the government of the particular families which is formed for the fulfillment of the low greed and narrow aspiration of those particular families. Lastly, it is the common people who are always at the receiving end of the leaders’ whims and tantrums. Phew, the country is not at all in the safe hands.
