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 “battle” 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 us—after all, “reality” 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 comments—
7. “India Is Better Than Pakistan Where Blasts Take Place Every Day, Every Week.”
Ah, well Mr. Singh, we genuinely understand your straightforwardness and pragmatic approach while talking, but you do understand the meaning of a “diplomat” don’t you? Since ages immemorial, we knew “politics” as being a synonym of “diplomacy”, but Digvijay Singh’s 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. “A Hundred Percent tunch maal”— Meenakshi Natarajan
If you’re to ask me the meaning of the italicized words, please don’t; this is yet another gem from King Digvijay Singh’s 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 Natarajan’s rescue by calling Singh a “mental case”, and that if need be, they’ll bear all the expenses of his treatment. Now, were you saying politics isn’t fun?
5. Really a “Real Feku”
Nope! This isn’t a part of random drawing room chitchat and gossips among friends, but the no-nonsense politician, Digvijay Singh’s yet another way of describing Gujarat CM, Narendra Modi. Although ‘not standing up to the mark’ is a common way of accusing the opposition, but without dignity, even politics seem a trifle joke!
4. “Arvind Kejriwal is like Rakhi Sawant. They both try and expose but with no substance.”
Okay, both Kejriwal and Sawant might really make a ‘cool’ pair indeed for numerous reasons, but seriously, public forum isn’t a place for their comparison—even we, the suckers for entertainment, believe so. However, kudos to Singh nonetheless for foreseeing the future of the-then IAC activist, Arvind Kejriwal—a no “substance” person indeed!
3. “Supreme Court Should Give Verdicts, No Observations”
Thank you, Mr. Singh for such a valuable “observation”, but no thanks! In a democracy where the power of the Supreme Court is regarded as the foremost, it’s a shame how a politician could make such an atrocious statement on the body’s manner. We only have one humble request for you, Singhji, please brush up your common sense or at least, the basic class-4 knowledge—how on earth can someone furnish “verdicts” without having something to present as ‘observations’?
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 you’re a very pious person, but do you always need to speak out in others’ matters—especially when you’ve so many things to be done (read, ‘said’) in here! Besides, you guessed it right—people won’t really understand your “sarcasm” in politics, so better keep shut and carry on!
1. RSS—the bomb makers and trainers!
Of course, we’re not saying this but our grand ol’ madcap is saying this—once again. His famous comment was that RSS “runs bomb-making factories to spread terrorism in the country”. Yet again out with his RSS bashing, Digvijay Singh even promised to even video clips of the same. However, that never came out!
