The Never-Ending Karnataka Election: Explained, Only Through Memes
Why waste time when we’ve got an entire election to describe in memes? Let’s get to it right away.
BJP: Baazigar with a Twist
BJP’s Overall Result: Lose, but act like you’ve won!
In Goa, Manipur and Meghalaya: Haar ke jeetne wale ko Baazigar nahi, BJP kehte hai!
In Karnataka: Haar ke, phir jeet ke, phir haar ke, phir bhi jeetne ka acting karne wale ko... BJP kehte hai!
Yeddyurappa’s 55 Hours: A
Triumphant True Story
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
Cong’s Overall Result: Swipe right on Kumaraswamy, kaafi CM face hai! And it’s a match!
Here’s Congress right after the election results.
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”
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?
Man of the Match?
Now that we’ve listed the winners, losers and spectators, take your pick. Who do YOU think was the real Man of the Match?
Option A: HD Kumaraswamy, CM jo ban gaye!
Option B: DK Shivakumar, for being Congress’ Last ‘Resort’
Option C: BS Yeddyurappa, for taking BJP so near yet so far
Option D: The Supreme Court. ’Nuff said.
