Guwahati Adda | Political analysis of the Oversmart

Litu: So we’re so close to the LS Polls. I wonder who is going to take the throne.
 

Bitu: Who do you think?


Litu: Well, I strongly feel that the “anti-incumbency” factor will come into play again. People are disappointed with both the party in power and the opposition that’s up against it.


Bitu: Which is why, I feel that independent candidates are going to be the dark horse this time around, at least for Guwahati.


Litu: Yeah, as these weeks go by, the independent candidates with a good chance will be “called upon.”


Bitu: Honestly, when leaders come to us, begging for votes, I feel, “Kabhi kabhi toh lagta hai, apuni hi bhagwaan hai.” But just after the elections, we are like “Bhagwaan ke naam pe kuch de de re baba.”


Litu: But you know, these days only “Allah ke naam pe kuch de de works.


Bitu: Ah! I can always count on you to make this racially inappropriate.


Litu: Well, someone has to find humour in these dark times. At least the voters have to. Otherwise, Indian politics is a good political joke in itself. 

Bitu: Leaving the name calling and trending hashtags that political trolls create aside, I think we’re in for dark times ahead. Schemes and promises have all failed. “Poriborton” is a joke, and there is no reasoning with bhakts. Propaganda seems to be the language everyone is speaking and...


Litu: Shush! Quit being such a pessimist and support “Ab ki baar, phir Modi Sarkaar.” Abhi ise karo sweekar or otherwise tum ho gunehgaar.
