India: Elections 2017 – Ten fun facts & cartoons

Elections 2017 – Ten fun facts (far away from the non stop verbal diarrhoea Yogendra Yadav & Mani Shankar Aiyar are throwing on television channels!)

1. #BJP winning approx 63% of seats (435/690) of #Elections2017. Orange Holi it is. Holi and Diwali to get proper electricity too. History takes ‘U’ turn. U for #UttarPradesh. U for #Uttarakhand.

2. Election Commission had banned all exit polls during elections. The polls came out later, still got it way way wrong! They didn’t see the #TsuNaMo coming.

3. Kudos to #Muslims of #UttarPradesh for choosing secularism and #TripleTalaqBan over polarization and appeasement. Union Minister Giriraj Singh’s was probably right, the minority tag to Muslims should be rolled back. 15% population doesn’t qualify to be labelled minority. They are majority and should be treated as a major force in helping build #India. #SabkaSaathSabkaVikas

4. #BJP didn’t field a single Muslim candidate in the UP elections and Muslims who voted for BJP, saw through the ideology. Out goes the repeatedly mentioned ‘Muslim vote’ agenda for future polls.

5. #Congress must thank #ArvindKejriwal for his non stop appearance ads on television news channels. That was biggest helping hand for #Congress. Next time they want to win an election must choose AK to be their rival.

6. Omar Abdullah has conceded defeat to the #Modi wave till 2024. #AAP concedes ‘sab mile huye hain….public bhi’!

7. Navjyot Singh Sidhu possibly the decisive factor in Punjab voting. Thokko Taali.

8. All in all, Punjabis of #Punjab have proved they are smarter than Delhites of #Delhi ! No more sardar jokes please!

9. Yet Manipuris of #Manipur proved they are smartest of all. They had overall voter turnout percentage of 86%. Highest ever. Kudos.

10. Indian media has learnt a lot from #Trump #POTUS win. Media hyped the five states election no end making it look bigger than #USAElections. Media influencers went on to predict #NaMo victory much ahead of time. Red face saved. Credibility intact.

Time for Uniform Civil Code.

Jai Hind.

There is only one God, for all.

There is only one India, for all.

  1. Very entertaining, no doubt . But let me add some more : SP’s cycle getting punctured as a result of RaGa riding on it . Behenji’s claim that EVMs in Uttar Pradesh elections were tempered as a result all votes went in favour of BJP . And finally the quip from NaMo himself about Tipu touching the electric wires [ as he knew that there was no electricity ] and RaGa ducking [ as he is used to ducking all questions ] . And then the validity of exit calls . NDTV claimed 193 seats in favour of BJP and at the last moment, actually brought it down to 170 !! All said and done , my belief is that by spending 3 days in Varanasi , NaMo turned the tide in BJP’s favour and I am personally convinced that now nothing will stop him from getting a second term in 2019 if he seeks one . Even his staunch critics like PC say so . Jai Hind .

    You missed major point – on same not as “Pakistan didn’t killed my father war did” …. on same note “Modi didn’t defeat…………….” and related cartoon of Akhilesh and Rahul
