Did BJP really lose 36 seats in Gujarat Panchayat elections?

“BJP lost all 36 seats in Gujrat Panchayat elections was big news!” The state is ruled by BJP since last 16 years. It has claimed that the State has progressed significantly under its ruling. Despite that, if it is losing Panchayat elections, isn’t it a sign of people’s dislike for the rule. Definitely yes! Because losing few seats is still fine. The voter in India not only looks at the party, but also the candidate. So if the candidate is good from other party, then they may vote for him/her. However, ruling party losing ‘all’ seats is a matter of concern for the party and is a clear sign that the government in power is not functioning well.

But let’s find the truth behind this rumour of ‘all 36 seats’. Who said about this ‘all 36 seats’? It was told by Ms. Preeti Sharma Menon from Mumbai who has written her bio in twitter as National Executive Member of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)!

Telling lies has become a habit for the leaders as well as party members of this party. Right from the chief of the party, everyone probably is given the training to tell lies! Later when the social media started criticizing Ms. Preeti Sharma Menon, she replied with an epic tweet.

That means, she wanted to give happiness for people! Wow! What an idea madam! She wasn’t apologetic at all for her mistake and didn’t take even moral responsibility for wrongly tweeting.

With all due respect, madam I would suggest you to share comedy scenes on your twitter handle. There are several comedians in our country like Kapil Sharma, Sunil Grover, Raju Shrivastava, Rajpal Yadav and many more who have good sense of humour and make comedies without making any non-sense comments. You have one more better option too. Your party chief is also one of the leading comedian in the recent times! Even if you share his tweets, that would be sufficient to make people happy. Why do you spread rumours!?

Being in National Executive Team, general public expect you to apologize publically. Because in Gujarat, the Gram Panchayat polls are not fought on party symbols but on individual capacity. The voter votes for the person rather than party at this level. During elections, the voter has to cast two votes; one for Sarpanch  and another for Panchayat member for his ward. Informal backing of a political party is not ruled out but the victory is not attributed to the party at all. If you do not know about this, then please learn it now! If you are a responsible person, then take moral responsibility for wrong news and resign from your position of National Executive Member of AAP.
