With the ensuing of yet another Lok Sabha Elections, the stage seems to be once again ready for a fierce verbal battle! And, now with the electronic social media and websites being en vogue, the âbattleâ seems to have just trebled up! Although election is quite an intriguing event in the country, it is nevertheless a full-time entertainment to most of usâafter all, ârealityâ shows sell more than the fictional ones! Well, you still seem unconvinced; well, go on to read this list about Digvijay Singh, one of the stalwarts of INC and the father of wayward talking in the political scenario, and some of his grand commentsâ
7. âIndia Is Better Than Pakistan Where Blasts Take Place Every Day, Every Week.â
Ah, well Mr. Singh, we genuinely understand your straightforwardness and pragmatic approach while talking, but you do understand the meaning of a âdiplomatâ donât you? Since ages immemorial, we knew âpoliticsâ as being a synonym of âdiplomacyâ, but Digvijay Singhâs infamous statements like this, that too when talks of a friendly union of the two countries are in the air, only goes on to deconstruct the meaning of politics.
6. âA Hundred Percent tunch maalââ Meenakshi Natarajan
If youâre to ask me the meaning of the italicized words, please donât; this is yet another gem from King Digvijay Singhâs taj. And, the most atrocious thing about this statement is that it was made on not any other random person, but his own colleague, Meenakshi Natarajan. This comment provoked so much controversy that the opposition came to Natarajanâs rescue by calling Singh a âmental caseâ, and that if need be, theyâll bear all the expenses of his treatment. Now, were you saying politics isnât fun?
5. Really a âReal Fekuâ
Nope! This isnât a part of random drawing room chitchat and gossips among friends, but the no-nonsense politician, Digvijay Singhâs yet another way of describing Gujarat CM, Narendra Modi. Although ânot standing up to the markâ is a common way of accusing the opposition, but without dignity, even politics seem a trifle joke!
4. âArvind Kejriwal is like Rakhi Sawant. They both try and expose but with no substance.â
Okay, both Kejriwal and Sawant might really make a âcoolâ pair indeed for numerous reasons, but seriously, public forum isnât a place for their comparisonâeven we, the suckers for entertainment, believe so. However, kudos to Singh nonetheless for foreseeing the future of the-then IAC activist, Arvind Kejriwalâa no âsubstanceâ person indeed!
3. âSupreme Court Should Give Verdicts, No Observationsâ
Thank you, Mr. Singh for such a valuable âobservationâ, but no thanks! In a democracy where the power of the Supreme Court is regarded as the foremost, itâs a shame how a politician could make such an atrocious statement on the bodyâs manner. We only have one humble request for you, Singhji, please brush up your common sense or at least, the basic class-4 knowledgeâhow on earth can someone furnish âverdictsâ without having something to present as âobservationsâ?
2. Sea-Burial to Osama? Fie fie!
Anyone who is into watching (yes, we only watch and no longer listen) News Channels must be knowing about his backlash against US for not giving Osamaji a proper funeral. So, Dijvijay ji, we know youâre a very pious person, but do you always need to speak out in othersâ mattersâespecially when youâve so many things to be done (read, âsaidâ) in here! Besides, you guessed it rightâpeople wonât really understand your âsarcasmâ in politics, so better keep shut and carry on!
1. RSSâthe bomb makers and trainers!
Of course, weâre not saying this but our grand olâ madcap is saying thisâonce again. His famous comment was that RSS âruns bomb-making factories to spread terrorism in the countryâ. Yet again out with his RSS bashing, Digvijay Singh even promised to even video clips of the same. However, that never came out!
