If Modi loses, RSS will build pressure

Baba challe Pardes...

My friend who is a Stock Broker by profession.... and a part-time Political analyst  comes to my Office and over Kadak Chai and Shrewsburry Biscuits we get chatting.


Friend: So RaGa Baba ne sirr mundwaya aur padh gaye olle..

M: If on 18th the Exit Polls results are on Chanakya's lines....if I was RaGa I'd would take sanyaas from Politics..

F: Mota Bhai but why are you sounding like Congi Spokesman... who trash Exit Poll results... only delay the pain!!

M: Without a doubt the Exit Polls are an indicator...and now that we have a basis of the voting pattern we can expect a victory for BJP....but not the results!! Worst BJP can get 100+ and best 130+!!!


F: Opinion Polls..

M: Guess work...like take Yogendra Yadav... says his 'guess work' was error of judgement...

F: Or he tried to help Congress by showing its a Congress wave....

M: As Congress came to know about the Exit Polls ... Congis gheraoed EC Office and started shouting slogans..

F: Clear indicator its realised Voter has preferred BJP....

M: So its obvious its Wolf Cries on EVMs are just a very Sour Loser Crying..

F: Yes because Exit Poll is asking  Voters how they Voted ... so its like getting the Voting Pattern from the Horse's Mouth..

M: Now RaGa will go overseas for an extended holiday...the Congress line will be... he's the President of Congress and is going to meet overseas Congress Branch Heads!!

F: What is the biggest takeaway from Gujarat election!!

M: Empty Vessel's criticism of a full Vessel ends in embarrassment for the Empty Vessel!! Every stone RaGa or Congis threw at Modi boomeranged on Congress...

F: What is Amit Shah's secret of success in Elections!!

M: His connect with Voters and Karyakartas....and for this rather than staying in Hotels ....he stays with Karyakartas .... has meals with them ... his connect is unparalleled


...and of course like Modi he has a sharp positive mind ....

F: Why has EC taken RaGa to task for his interview...but overlooked Modi's so said 'roadshow' post his voting...

M: RaGa gave an Interview to a local Gujarat Channel... he spoke about Gujarat elections only....knowing fully well the interview would be aired during the period no canvassing is allowed .... 24 hours before Voting...Modi walked showing his voting finger...... apart from Voting ink nothing on his finger... did not utter a word...

F: Congress ko toh abh harr baat pe ronne ki addat padh gayi hai..

M: There are two kinds of EVMs now for Congress - Honest and Dishonest.

Honest: Delhi, Punjab, WB, Karnataka...

Dishonest: Wherever Modi wins....next year maybe the Karnataka EVMs could become dishonest...

F: What's going to happen to Sonia... has she been retired!!

M: I think the Elders in Congress will demand she be made Chairman Emeritus... some of the middle aged lot who still behave like kids and are part of the RaGa's Gang want ...she either be the Queen Mom.. or ex Congress President!

F: I think rather than RaGa she should now travel...enjoy her Espressos in Cafes... eat authentic Italian food...dress the way she likes...of course after giving her Daughter some important responsibility in the Party .... she can't leave RaGa alone to mind the shop...

M: The irony as I see it... she's willing to let go off the blanket but the blanket will not leave her... in RaGa's case 3/4 of the blanket wants to leave him but he's clutching on to the blanket..so hard!!!


We have a good laugh and I see my friend off at the door.
