When a spokesperson of Congress was approached by this reporter for his take on this unprecedented move, he said, “Were you one of those that voted for us? Because if you did, you are a prime accused in this case and therefore have no right to question any of our decisions”. He followed this up with diabolical laughter, before eventually explaining, “You elected us. All these scams, they are your fault, not ours.”
Pranab Mukherjee quotes Lethal Weapon
Meanwhile, Mr. Pranab Mukherjee, Honourable President of India ran out of ways to stave off unwieldy questions about this move made by his former party. Unable to come up with any more diplomatic rejoinders, he simply quoted Roger Murtaugh from Lethal Weapon saying, “I am too old for this s#!t.”

“I wish I were HRD Minister for some more time”
Mr. Kapil Sibal, the former HRD Minister also jumped on the bandwagon and pointed out that society can be improved only through good education. He stated that suing the public was part of this large scale educational undertaking. He still wants an immediate charge of HRD Ministry and has assured us of eliminating corruption within a few months – by bribing everyone who wants to indulge in this nefarious activity.
Sonia Gandhi realizes her folly
The BJP, principal opposition to the Congress has seized an opportunity that it sensed in this melee. Citing the many times that Rahul Gandhi had claimed to be a common man himself, they are now pointing out that he is also therefore part of the group that is being sued i.e. in effect, the Congress party is suing one of its own members. As soon this angle dawned on her, Sonia Gandhi hastily ordered a complete overturning of her party’s decision. Arvind Kejriwal, who was busy making preparations for a hunger strike, expressed his disappointment at this one smart move made by the Congress.
