I still remember those days of 2012 and 2013 and 2014 when India’s intellectuals used to lecture us on the greatness of Kejriwal and his new politics. Does anyone else remember those AAPtards on their high horses and their intellectual footmen? The question for India’s intellectuals is crystal clear: were you fooled then or were you deliberately lying? If you were deliberately lying, what were your incentives for doing so? If you were fooled, how dare you call yourself “intellectuals”?
No, I won’t make this a post about high handed Kejriwal going to Bengaluru for a 10 day vacation as his henchmen were left with the task of physically beating up the dissenters in the party and throwing them out. I want to make this a light, even funny post if possible. First, here we go:
(For readers who don’t speak Hindi, the headline in Dainik Jagran says “MLAs to get more salary than the Prime Minister” )
Yes, the Prime Minister’s salary is Rs 1.6 lakh a month, but AAP MLAs will earn Rs 2.35 lakh per month! Didn’t they say “Never underestimate the power of a common man“? As Delhi government refuses to pay salaries to poor garbage workers, the Aam Aadmi CM has voted himself a 400% pay hike. Ha! Hey…intellectuals…where are you guys? Are you all on vacation? Well, at least Kejriwal has fulfilled his life’s ambition of beating Modi. Now Kejriwal makes much more money than Modi does. At this rate, Kejriwal will soon be able to purchase Ambani and Adani too 😉
Call me an optimist, but I believe there are still honest people among India’s intellectual class. 99% of them are Mameluks, but 1% is honest. And I know that this 1% is embarrassed by Kejriwal’s actions. Kejriwal doesn’t care. In fact, Kejriwal is spitting on them deliberately. And I am loving it! Hey you intellectual idiots, Kejriwal doesn’t need you any more. He has discovered his natural constituency among peaceful voters and the most underprivileged among the urban underclass. He is their leader now. Mayawati and Mulayam are used to throwing lavish parties at public expense. Believe it or not, in a weird way, their voters actually feel proud about “their Netaji” living life in luxury. That’s what Kejriwal’s core voters are thinking right now. I bet you they are boasting about the 400% pay hike Kejriwal gave himself. Intellectual idiots turned out to be the puppies under Kejriwal’s car. Yay!
I told you this would be a light hearted post. The second thing I wanted to talk about was Kejriwal coming out in favor of a #Jokeban :
Ha ha 🙂 From banning corruption to banning jokes in just 2 years. While intellectuals were worried about the freedom to eat beef, Kejriwal is busy with a Jokeban. Imagine for a second if a BJP Chief Minister or Modi himself had come out openly in favor of banning Santa Banta jokes. Can you imagine the criticism and storm of satire that would have been thrown up? What kind of thought and speech police does Kejriwal want? Will he be taping all conversations in public and private to scan for Santa Banta jokes? And what punishment will be given to those who make such jokes. This exchange is epic:
I suggest this. Call Kejriwal’s “anti-corruption helpline” 1031 and report that you just heard someone on the street tell a Santa Banta joke.
