Funny quips add colour to the political slugfest

IANS  |  New Delhi 

In the political season where abuses and invectives on and public rallies have hit a new low (one can't forget Khan's derogatory comment against BJP's candidate Jayaprada), a few leaders have kept their humorous side alive, posting messages in the lighter vein, enough to your funny bones.

Take the case of Secretary who made her debut only in February this year.

Speaking at a roadshow in the Capital, she said BJP's situation now was "like those of children who haven't done their homework and tell their teacher, "Kya karoon, Nehruji ne mera parcha le liya aur chhupa diya, Indiraji ne mere homework ki kashti banake baha diya' (What can I do, Nehruji took my homework and hid it. Indiraj made paper boat out of my homework)".

Priyanka Chaturvedi, former and current candidate, took a hilarious jibe at who is contesting against from Amethi in

"A new serial is going to come - Kyunki Mantri Bhi Kabhi Graduate Thi. Its opening line will be 'Qualifications ke bhi roop badalte hain, naye-naye sanche mein dhalte hain, ek degree aati hai, ek degree jaati hai, bante affidavit naye hain. (Qualification versions also change, get moulded into new forms, one degree comes and the other goes, new affidavits get created)," Chaturvedi had said.

Congress Navjot Singh Sidhu, known for his dramatic metaphors, compared to a "bride".

"Modi Ji uss dulhan ki tarah hain jo roti kum baelti hai aur chudiyaan zyada khankati hai taaki mohalle walon ko yeh pata chale ki woh kaam kar rahi hai. Bas yahi hua hai Modi sarkaar mein (Modiji is like the bride who works less in the kitchen but makes more noise so that neighbours think she is always working)," Sidhu said during a meeting in on Saturday.

In an earlier tweet, Sidhu said: was BA pass in 2014 and in 2019 elections, she cleared higher secondary (12th standard). "Mujhe lagta hai 2024 ke chunav se pahle KG main admission le hi lengi (I think she will take admission in KG standard before 2024 polls)."

Taking a dig at Sunny Deol, this is what (AAP) wrote on (in Hindi): "The way in which ji in Bikaner and ji in Mathura strengthened our democracy, in the same way like his last movie 'Bhai Sahab', has joined the poll fray from Gurdaspur to strengthen it".

When pulled up for supporting AAP, calling her aunty, Bhaskar replied: "Didi, paani pee lo" (Sister, have a glass of water).

Mocking BJP's "Main bhi chowkidar" campaign, Congress leader had tweeted: "Main bhi chowkidhar because the chowkidhar I had appointed is missing. I am told he has gone looking for achhe din".
