Some hilarious moments from the ‘Bharat Bandh’ today led by Congress and Rahul Gandhi

Protesting against high petrol and fuel prices, opposition parties led by Congress called for a nationwide bandh today. There were reports of hooliganism and vandalism that also trickled in from various parts of the country. However, amidst the news about the bandh from across the country, came some videos that gave us some amusement. Here are some:

In Neemuch in Madhya Pradesh, few Congress workers were doing a procession while chanting slogans. Suddenly, they got confused and chanted “Rahul Gandhi Murdabaad”.

In Belagavi, Karnataka, few AAP workers were doing a protest, but perhaps some workers were not aware of what they were protesting against. One of them demanded an increase in petrol prices! The result? The party leader present there immediately went to him and slapped him.

Congress workers in Neemuch were not the only ones who were confused between zindabaad and murdabaad. Somewhere else, Congress workers were caught chanting Narendra Modi zindabaad slogan during today’s bandh.

And this Pune man wins the internet today. The India Today reporter was expecting some usual comment against price rise and difficulty due to the bandh, but for this man, Congress is a bigger problem than anything else. He says Congress is the main problem. He also says even if petrol price becomes ₹200 it will be alright, but he doesn’t want Congress back in power.

In Karnataka, Congress workers were enforcing the bandh by forcing shop owners to shut their shops, when suddenly a woman appeared on the scene and started chanting counter-slogans “Narendra Modi ki jay, Bharat Mata ki jay”, which resulted in Congress workers to chant slogans louder and one of them physically mishandled the lady also.

In Udupi, Rikshaw drivers confronted Congress party workers with “Modi, Modi” slogan, forcing the bandh enforcers to retreat.

Social media was full of such videos of people rejecting the bandh and confronting opposition party workers with counter slogans when such counter slogans were not chanted by the opposition workers themselves.

It is perhaps the greatest testament to Congress’ credibility if such videos emerge during a supposed nationwide strike.
