Amit Shah: Lost (Not Just in Translation)

To get the joke, watch this video.

Amit Shah telling the media how the BJP *actually* won in Karnataka is like a Delhi Daredevils fan thinking they’ve won the IPL.

PS: They’re out of the tournament.

JD(S) Tum Aage Badho, Haath Tumhare Saath Hai

Congs Overall Result: Swipe right on Kumaraswamy, kaafi CM face hai! And its a match!

Here’s Congress right after the election results.

Aao kabhi sarkar banaye!

Riddle time: Yeh batao, in the above picture, who is the king and who is the kingmaker?

The Congress could not have come to power without JD(S)’ support. So that makes Kumaraswamy kingmaker, right? But hang on, Kumarswamy is the new Karnataka CM so is he the king and not the kingmaker? And he only got the post because DK Shivakumar ensured that the Congress and JD(S) MLAs did not cross sides, so that means Shivakumar is the real kingmaker? Right?

Toh king kaun aur kingmaker kaun?

Siddaramaiah: A Bitter Victory

For Siddaramaiah, the man who went by the phrase “CM face of the Congress”, it’s a bitter victory. For his party to be part of the government, and for him to not be at the helm of it, you bet it’s gotta hurt. But he still ends on the winning side, if not as the Man of the Match!

Before the Floor Test...

Our parties: “Everybody, get on the floor.”
Their parties: “Everybody, get on the floor (test).”

Cue lyrics (Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull)

If you go hard you gotta get on the floor
If you're a party freak, then step on the floor
Break a sweat on the floor
Yeah we work on the floor

Apt, right?

After the Floor Test: Akhil Bharatiya Fraaandship Party!

Left, TMC, BSP, SP, baaki sab ka overall result: A chance for the opposition to rejoice, but chunav abhi baaki hai. T-minus 365 days to 2019 ka final.

Swear in your CM, swear at your opponent?

But seriously, Mr. Nirupam, that’s just a downright disgusting thing to say.
