Congress’ national spokesperson Sanjay Jha, whose alleged secret desires of becoming a dancer was the topic of discussion on social media recently, has made another statement that is bound to get the floodgates of jokes opened, towards Congress party itself.

Jha stated on Twitter that it would be better for India if ‘Alexa’, Amazon’s virtual assistant with a lovely female voice, becomes the next finance minister of India.

Jha might have intended it as a pun towards our current finance minister who happens to be a woman, but the irony of a Congress spokesperson tweeting about a ‘robotic’ finance minister was not going to be ignored by netizens.

Twitter users reminded Jha of the decade between 2004 and 2009 when, as per them, India was being ruled by a virtual assistant of Congress’ boss-lady.

Another Twitter user pointed it to Jha that Alexa may be a better choice for the post of Congress president, taking a dig at the months-long drama over the post when Rahul Gandhi kept denying and Congress finally ‘elected’ his mother Sonia Gandhi as the interim president.

Sanjay Jha is known for often trying to give cryptic statements that may sound like criticism for the NDA government initially, but are actually jokes on Congress itself. Earlier, he had equated Karti Chidambaram, his party’s leader and P Chidambaram’s son with fugitive money launderers like Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya.
