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.
Hey Sanjay Jha,
We have seen your ALEXA as a FINANCE MINISTER ….???? pic.twitter.com/3rgMFId7Bq

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.
How rude of you to call Manmohan Singh #Alexa .
Please respect him he was the ex finance minister and ex prime minister of India. Please don’t call him Alexa

Well, your Malkin’s Alexa was Prime Minister for 10 years and the country knows very well how good India did!

Why are Congressis so fond of having robots as Prime Minister of Finance Minister ? Guess.. madam is fond of giving orders to get her work done.

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.
Serious advice, make Alexa the Congress President! Give up on the ? and Godmother!

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.
