Uttar Pradesh. Akhilesh Yadav, leader of “Baap Kamaye Beta Udaye” movement has added one more spoke to his bicycle. His autobiography “How to Bully your Dad” has sold one million copies overnight. The book has been published by Election Commission of India and the online partner is ‘Bigde Baap ke Bigde Bete.com.’
It has been reported that the maximum orders were placed by the Youth wing of Samajwadi Party, followed by sons who have been trying to extort motorcycles from their fathers since they turned 18. After the launch of this book the demand for English to Hindi dictionaries has shot up exponentially.
Akhilesh Yadav claims that his book will inculcate reading habits in the youth. In a candid interview with our F.N. reporter, the UP CM said, “Chetan Bhagat ki kitabein wo padhte hain jinko pehle se padhna aata hai..meri kitab padhne ke liye log padhna seekhenge”. Akhilesh Yadav promised that Hindi and Bhojpuri versions will also be made available. He also plans to bring it under ‘Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan’ and make it a part of school curriculum.
Noticing the limelight being snatched away from him, Chetan Bhagat immediately called for a press conference. But Akhilesh’ Gundas were present at the venue and did not let any reporter get inside. All Bhagat could do was tweet on social media.
Meanwhile, Akhilesh Yadav is all set to write his next book Why Demanding a Bicycle is every Son’s Right. This will be co- authored by the Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Jaidi. Advance bookings for this book has already been made. The maximum number of orders have been placed by 10 year old boys.
Shobha De has taken an objection for the book title and taken the matter to the National Commission of Women. She wants the ‘Son’ in the title be replaced by ‘Daughter’.
Sheila Dixit, Mamta Banarjee and Mayawati will be supporting Shobha De. Priyanka Gandhi has refused to answer when asked to comment on gender discrimination in choosing political heirs.
