Bypoll results: when ‘journalists’ turned strategists for the ‘Opposition’

Media Propaganda

Results of various bypoll elections held recently were declared today. While BJP won in Palghar, Maharashtra, Tharali, Uttarakhand and Nagaland Lok Sabha bypoll elections, the opposition won the remaining including the high stakes Kairana (Uttar Pradesh, RLD) and Noorpur (Uttar Pradesh, Samajwadi Party) and Jokihat (Bihar, RJD). Except for Rajrajeshwarinagar Assembly seat in Karnataka and Shahkot Assembly seat in Punjab, regional parties have fared better than Congress. During the high octane, Karnataka Assembly polls Congress had to form an alliance with JDS to form the government, which is already on shaky grounds. However, the ‘neutral’ journalists of India have become Opposition strategists for a day dishing out advice on what future course of action for the Opposition should be.


Can the Nehru fan-girl be far behind on nudging Congress in the ‘right’ direction?


And then she cheered for fodder scam convict Lalu Yadav’s son, Tejashwi Yadav.


AAP cheerleader and a ‘journalist’ with a fading career desperately clutching to straws, too chimed in to appear relevant.


Perhaps Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s political end is near.


Election season is upon us and the machinery is getting itself oiled. With the same people in charge of writing articles, opinions and editorials in the months during the run-up to the 2019 elections, it is time we start taking what they say with a pinch of propaganda.
