New Delhi: After seeking ban on opinion polls, Congress is now thinking about putting a ban on 2014 elections itself. In an emergency meeting Congress Working Committee concluded that they are wasting their time in banning opinion polls, exit polls, blocking twitter handles and Facebook posts etc.
Salman Khurshid, a senior congress leader told Faking News “In last one year we have banned/blocked so many things that even if a gutter gets blocked in this country, opposition starts blaming Congress. Initially all of us had the opinion that opinion polls need to be banned. But soon we realized that we should rather attack the root of the problem – General Elections.”
Shaitaan Khopdi™: You took opinion of all the members to decide a ban on opinion polls? Wonderful!! Go on.
Khurshid: You should know how decision making happens in our party. Madam or Rahul ji takes a decision and others figure out how to justify it. So naturally by the time meeting ends, all members reach at the same opinion. We are a democratic party unlike ‘party with a difference’. We don’t work on the whims and fancies of one person.
He further explained, “While deciding on banning opinion polls we thought that ultimate aim is to come back to power in 2014. Let us ban the elections itself. Elections are such a waste of taxpayer’s money. Congress has always believed in the saying ‘Great leader are born not made’”.
When Shaitaan Khopdi™ argued if this is allowed in constitution, Mr Khurshid told that constitution doesn’t explicitly mentions any such thing, but I am sure Mr. Sibbal can find some clause which can be interpreted in a way that allow us what we want. Even if there is no such clause, we will move an ordinance to make such law. If president again refuses to sign then all we have to do is ask Ajay Maken to organize a press meet and Rahul Baba will do the rest.
We asked “But Supreme Court might strike it down”. Khurshid’s prompt reply stunned Shaitaan Khopdi™, “Only if you could think as much as you talk. Ek bar (phir) emergency lagne do, tab dekhna who strikes whom. Having said that, we have highest regard for the judiciary and law will take its own course. Just that we will decide the course of law”
