Digvijay Singh

Digvijay Singh, the legend himself, with the trophy that will be awarded to the winner.

Faking News owes to people who speak a lot (sorry Dr. Manmohan Singh), especially those who speak without thinking. Because the more they speak, the easier it becomes for us to find topics to write on. That’s why we have decided to honor such brave-mouths for their spectacular deeds in the year 2011, with a title aptly called “Digvijay Singh of the Year” – named after the person who does it with unmatched aplomb.

We have shortlisted five candidates each in five broad categories – Politics, Entertainment, Cricket, Journalism, and Others – based on your responses on Twitter and Facebook (sorry Google Plus), and now is the time to select the winner.

We start with politics, and there were dozens of nominations, but the final five nominees (based on popular choice) are:

  • Kapil Sibal – for ‘zero loss’ and ‘internet censorship’ comments
  • Manish Tewary – for ‘Anna is corrupt from head to toe’ comment
  • Rahul Gandhi – for ‘beggar’ and ‘99% terror attacks stopped’ comments
  • Mayawati – for her ‘Assange is mad and Wikileaks anti-dalit’ comment
  • Nitin Gadkari – for the comment that led to everyone in BJP becoming PM’s candidate

    I didn’t vote because of the unavailability of “NONE OF THE ABOVES” option. I support Anna Jaare Jaare, so i didn’t Vote.

    In a very short interview DogVijay singh said “Pagal Patrakar ” is RSS agent and motivate peoples against Amul Baby as they didn’t put “NONE OF THE ABOVES” options in the vote. He wants that option here to proof that it won’t work in India and if you need “NONE OF THE ABOVE” option than it must go automatically to Amul Baby.
