New Delhi: Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee has found its new President, and it is Mr. Umakant living in Nangloi.
Mr. Umakant was appointed to the post after he voted for Congress in an opinion poll carried out by a leading poll agency ahead of the assembly elections on the 8th of this month.
At a time when several Congress stalwarts are unaware that the Party is fighting any election in Delhi, this man’s awareness really impressed Party High Command and they immediately offered the post to Umakant who graciously accepted.
Speaking to Faking News, a senior Congress official said, “We were looking at the results of an opinion poll yesterday that showed 1% people selecting Congress. That sent a wave of excitement in our Headquarters and we immediately contacted the agency to find out who are these 1% people. Then the agency told us that their sample size was 100 so it is only 1 person who is carrying Congress flag in these opinion polls. After a bit of coercion, the agency shared the details of Umakant and we immediately contacted him.”
“Umakant was invited to our HQ where all the senior leaders greeted him and he was showered with rose petals. He showed more faith in Congress than what we ourselves show so Sonia Ji offered him a chance to lead the Congress party in Delhi and fortunately he accepted. We now have a very positive and dynamic leader going into the elections on the 8th”, he further added.
When we contacted Umakant to ask why he picked Congress in the opinion poll, he said, “Bhai when the surveyor mentioned Congress, I raised my hand to slap him but he just saw my palm and said that finally he found a panje wala and ran. It got me state Congress presidency so all is well that ends well.”
