Expensive Elections

15 May

Would you believe me if I said India spent more on its elections this year than the US did last year? Actually, it isn’t me who’s saying it…

According to NYT, President Obama’s election cost $2.4 billion. While India’s patchwork-quilted government is yet to take shape, the newspaper says “Candidates and parties spent $3 billion on everything, including transportation, advertising, celebrity endorsements and cash bribes over the course of the campaign…”

Now, whether it’s Mr Singh or Mr Advani (or some other rabble rouser) who finally make it as PM, it would be interesting to know whether the economy is in slowdown mode despite the infusion of this capital. Does it also mean that post-elections, there’ll be even less money in the system?

And if the Congress does make it, will they tell us what percentage of this spend (give or take a few million) went into greasing palms. After all, they’re the ones with the symbol of an open hand.

No Leaders?

8 Apr

On February 3, I observed that LK Advani and the BJP seemed to be digitally ahead of Rahul Gandhi and the Congress.

The young man still doesn’t seem to have an official website… although there is one with a .us domain. Strange but true.

His party, however, has an election-specific website called Vote for Congress.

I went a bit deeper, into the third tab titled ‘Leaders’, and this is what I saw:

Where are Congress' leaders?

Where are Congress' leaders?

In case the image isn’t large enough for you, here’s a close-up: it simply says ‘No Leaders’!

Congress Party Website

Where are Congress' leaders?

This one was found by friend Neeraj and I’m sure the Congress will find its missing leaders as soon as its site development team locates the content; but, until then, thankfully there’s this screen-grab 🙂

So much for Lead India.

UPDATE: APRIL 15…

The Congress Party has found its leaders – in the nick of time! Here.

Joota Ho?

8 Apr

The Congress has an officially licensed rendition of Jai Ho:

The BJP’s tried to (poorly) parody it with Bhai Ho:

Question is… will the Akali Dal now create a Joota Ho?


P.S: try Googling Jarnail Singh and you’ll end up finding Bhindranwale…
