With the state assembly elections in many states coming closer, the election fever is catching up. The political dust is in the air. I am in Jalandhar these days. I would pick up some amusing utterances by the politicians in the run up to elections. It may make you laugh but politics is not a laughing matter.
It is a season for Yatras – the road is full of Yatras of L.K. Advani, Swami Ramdev, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Amrinder Singh of Congress, Manpreet Badal of Punjab Peoples Party and so on. You may like to taste the flavor of these Yatra.
“One is budda chor (old thief) and the other is a jawan chor (young thief) “Punjab Congress leader Amrinder Singh on Senior and Junior Badals (CM and Dy. CM of Punjab)
“Badalan ne sirf Punjab nu lootya te kuteya hai (Badals have only looted the state and thrashed the people) “Punjab Congress leader Rajinder Kaur Bhattal on Badals
“Earlier dhadis used to sing praises of our gurus from the Akali stages...now bikni clad dancers perform and Sukhbir (Punjab Dy. CM) sings ‘ tu meri chamach challo “ Punjab Congress leader Jagmeet Brar
Sukhbir Badal retorted back and ridiculing the Punjab Bachao Yatra said “ It is more of a helicopter yatra with Captain ( Amrinder Singh ) conveniently avoiding the heat and dust of villages “
More to follow….
Political Rally: Where a person gets up to speak, has nothing to say, nobody listens, then everyone disagrees
