Congress puts the ‘slow’ in ‘economic slowdown’, protest rally due in October to be held in December

What will happen on 2nd December? Watch this space as Congress turns protests into new year party in 2020.

The grand old party today announced that it will hold an all-party protest rally on December 1 at Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi on issues of ‘economic slowdown and agrarian crisis’. This is the third such ‘protest rally’ announced by Congress since September.


In September, Congress had announced a country-wide agitation from 15th to 25th October on these issues. That, too, was announced a month in advance. Amusingly, even without the hard work of protests, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi was off vacationing at mysterious foreign location after the October protest days flew by.

Then, in October, before the last date of planned protests, i.e. 25th October, expired, Congress announced fresh dates of protests against ‘economic slowdown’.


On 22nd October, Congress said they’d protest across the country in first week of November. Congress had announced that starting from 5th to 15th November, the party will hold protests across the country and a rally in Delhi. These protests were also for ‘rising unemployment’, ‘sinking economy’ and ‘farmer distress’.

As 5th November flew by, Congress woke up and realised they missed yet another deadline. So on 6th November, they announced new dates of protests, this time, a combined protest with other parties.


Not too surprisingly, the joke wasn’t lost on netizens who took this opportunity to mock Congress for being a bigger joke than the party’s former President himself.


Congress also got mocked at for being the ‘laziest opposition’.


Netizens even questioned whatever happened to these earlier protests.


In a new low, even Aam Aadmi Party trolls, who are even bigger joke than ex-Congress President, were mocking Congress.
