RG – mmm..

Arnab – Yes! You said you agree! So, who is supposed to raise the voice of Amethi’s poverty in the parliament Mr RG? The nation wants to know tonight, and its you, who has to answer.

RG – Poverty is a state of mind.

Arnab – No No No No No Mr RG. There is someone who is asking you a question about not asking questions in the question session in the parliament. and there is someone who says Poverty is a state of mind. Nevertheless, One said, can you elaborate on that? The nation wants to know tonight.

RG – Poverty is a state of mind as UP is a state of India. [Claps] Arnab – Here’s another statement coming in… Poverty is a state of mind as UP is a state of India. The nation is watching. Let’s come back after a break.

RG – wait… let me recall the answer… mmm.. mmm… yes! “Congress is the default software of this country”… no no.. ye wala nahi.. “People do come and go, but I am to stay here”

Arnab – 1 sec 1 sec 1sec… what was that ‘default software’ statement?

RG – Congress is the default software of this country.

Arnab – And this is answer to which question?

RG – Look, its all messed up in my mind. Let me go to a Dalit house and have a glass of water.

Arnab – RG RG RG. we are short of time. Just one last question the nation wants to know tonight is written on this paper. Have a look on it and answer to the nation.

[RG takes the paper, reads it and Tears it apart] RG – This is a ‘Bakwas’ question! This question should be sent to the Jupiter with escape velocity.
