Candidates who lost in assembly elections being tortured in BJP HQ with recordings of ‘Mann Ki Baat’ on loop

New Delhi: Elections in 5 Indian states have just concluded and Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) suffered losses in the 3 states it was ruling, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. These losses have severely angered the party President Mr. Amit Shah who has called all losing candidates to Delhi to explain the reasons behind their loss. Candidates are being tortured inside BJP headquarters till they truthfully mention the reason for their loss.

During their torture, they are being subjected to PM Narendra Modi’s Mann Ki Baat recordings on loop. Along with the losing candidates, state Party Presidents are also being forced to listen to the program and asked to explain in detail the reasons for the losses.

One party insider speaking on the condition of anonymity said, “It is bad man, really bad. Their ears are bleeding and they are pulling their hair out, and most of them are crying. Some of them tried to get away by just saying that they take full responsibility for the loss and will work harder in the future but Mr. Amit Shah didn’t accept that. He said this is an essay type question, a one-line answer will not be accepted.”

On the selection of Mann Ki Baat as the chosen device for torture, he said, “All of us have to listen to that program every month and we have seen the faces of each Party member in the office during that time so we know how much they hate listening to it. If one single program at a time hurts them so much then imagine 50 recordings being played on a loop.”

Meanwhile, we overheard Sambit Patra calling Congress HQ to ask how to spin a loss as a moral victory.
