New Delhi: In response to a decision taken by the Bhartiya Janta Party Central Election Committee (CEC) meeting that was held here on Monday, Dr. Kumar Vishwas called an emergency meeting at AAP office to try and tackle the challenges ahead.

BJP announced the candidature of  Mrs. Smriti Irani for the Lok Sabha elections from Amethi constituency. This is being seen by the AAP as an attempt to try and defeat already loosing candidate Kumar Vishwas. In response the AAP called a meeting to try to work out strategy to come second at least.

In the meeting Kumar Vishwas suggested that the best way to tackle Smriti Irani was to try and find her link with Adani and Ambani. To which Sanjay Singh recalled her old days of “Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi”. He reminded that her name was “Tulsi Virani” in the popular serial. This was observed as a master stroke by Sri Sri Satya Dev Arvind Kejriwal who said that now the AAP attack would be on ADANI, AMBANI AND VIRANI and that would make AAP look even more idiotic.

Shazia Ilmi suggested that keeping in mind her reputation as a nice bahu, AAP should try to focus more on saas vote bank. But this was strongly contested by Dr.Kumar Vishwas who promptly replied that it wont help because “Saas bhi kabhi bahu thi” to which all others agreed.

Prashant Bhushan then suggested that having ‘Irani’ as a surname AAP should challenge her candidature in court as ‘she can fight election only in Iran’ according to him. However the proposal was rejected keeping in mind the future plans of AAP to contest the up coming elections in Iran.

Yogendra Yadav aka Saleem, according to sources asked them all to shut up and advised Kumar Vishwas to search more about the  serials in which Smriti Irani has worked in the past, and asked him to watch all episodes on Star Utsav before coming to the next meeting.

Kumar was however angry over such an instruction as he had plannned to watch the T-20 world cup but wont be able to do so. Arvind Kejriwal called off the meeting saying that he was not convinced with the ideas because Narendra Modi’s name  was not coming anywhere in the context.

The next meeting is scheduled to be held in Amethi next week.
