Pakodas going a long way in the Rajya Sabha!

Wednesday, February 07, 2018

National level parties like Congress and BJP are waging war of words as the 'Pakoda' comment is paying a heavy price for the Congress party. First, it was Manishankar Aiyar's Chaiwalla comment which brought victory for the BJP in 2014 General elections and now, the Pakoda comment going a long way in the Rajya Sabha. The BJP was waiting to pay P. Chidambarm in his own coin. The former finance minister was trying to take a leaf out of Mani Shankar Aiyar's books by bringing 'pakodas' to the floor of the house Amit Shah chose the appropriate words to attack UPA's scam. The Congress is in total predicament with the upcoming Karnataka elections. ''If a tea-seller can become the prime minister, who knows, one day the next generation of a pakoda seller may become an industrialist and go high up in the ladder!,'' Amit Shah exclaimed.
