This comment on Twitter seems to perfectly convey the ground truth :
@over_rated : The reason the Congress seems to be winning elections is because “None of the above” is not an option on the ballot box!
You often don’t need more than 140 characters. But get ready for hours and pages of election analysis.
The quote of the day comes from Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, when asked why he was addressing a press conference for the Shiney Ahuja case :
“I had actually come for a conference on global warming,” he said.
Then was National Commission for Women Chief Girija Vyas :
We are not here for media attention.
It is sacrilegious to even think that Mrs. Vyas would be in Mumbai just for media attention. So what if she has been hogging the limelight more than anyone else in the case ? It is just we who think that she is attending to this case as it is a high profile one. In fact, she has been known to be omnipresent and has been present for the trial of each of the 20,000 odd rape cases in India.
This was his reaction when asked if he had any message for party high command Sonia Gandhi.
Okay just kidding.
But with the decision of the election commission to apply ink to the middle finger instead of the usual index finger, such photographs are to be found aplenty.
The Akshay Kumar incident doesn’t seem so vulgar now, does it ?

Just a few days earlier, Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa (hmm .. what could the BS possibly stand for) who made the statement that he would not allow growth of “pub culture” in the state, but I didn’t go as far as calling it a fall into disgrace.
But now I can, this time for falling from his chair. Not a figurative one. A literal one !
For those interested in a discussion, the problem with his first statement was that he should have called it ‘his personal opinion’, but the ‘I will not allow growth of pub culture’ doesn’t make him any different from the people who actually did not allow it in Mangalore. In this context, I appreciate the statements of Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, who mentioned he was against it. Fair enough.
P.S. : Why is every Chief Minister being asked about his/her stand on ‘pub culture’ ?
Giving a new dimension to all those sayings about winners, quitters and losers is the veteRAN Envious politician.
Seriously ? Quitting ? That too after losing ?
Apparently, its nicer to be a quitter and a loser. Methinks he shouldn’t have quit. That way, he would just be a loser.
P.S. : I normally do not post or encourage matrimonials in this blog, but posting for a dear friend :
Seeking a well-to-do politial party for a politician with over 10 years of professional experience.
Average looking, slightly oversized mouth (with a foot in it), has worked in all kinds of conditions (read alliances). Match preferrably settled in Maharashtra. But location not important. Ideologies can be compromised. No vices (or deputies, only CMship).
Want to fix the match as soon as possible.
