After Tulika in Gujarat, it is Mallika in Haryana for Congress

08, Feb 2013 By Sandeep Kadian

Rohtak. Mallika Sherawat will lead Congress campaign in Haryana during the 2014 assembly elections, Haryana Congress chief Mr. Phool Chand Mullana announced today.

She will be the face of the campaign and there will be 50 commercials per day featuring Mallika Sherawat every day on every channel for the next 1 year.

Mallika Sherawat (born Reema Lamba) is a Bollywood actress from Rohtak in Haryana. She has claimed to be a Hollywood actress as well, but Faking News didn’t find any evidence of that except the term ‘LA‘ (Los Angeles) in her Twitter handle.

Flanked by Chief Minister Mr. Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Mr. Mullana said, “After the tremendous success of ‘Tulika for Gujarat’ campaign that saw Congress score a huge moral victory in Gujarat elections, the party has decided to follow the same model in every state. This was discussed in detail during the Chintan Shivir in Jaipur, and since then we were looking for an ideal candidate to lead our campaign in Haryana. Finally we have settled for Mallika Sherawat.”

Explaining the decision to appoint Ms. Sherawat, CM Hooda said, “We had contemplated several candidates like Poonam Pandey and Sherlyn Chopra, but in the end we decided to go with a local girl, Mallika Sherawat. She is a Jat so she will help us in the Jat belt. At the same time, she is very popular among the youth of our state as well. In a recent survey, we found her photo in almost every room of every boys hostel in Haryana, apparently she inspires all of them. We will portray her as an empowered woman to attract the female voters too.”

“Our government is currently under attack by communal forces who talk about land grab by our government in Haryana so we need to start our campaign early and ensure not much damage is done to our image. That is why we have decided to hire Mallika well in advance and start our campaign,” Mr. Hooda added.

When asked about Mallika’s response to this offer, Mr. Mullana said, “Mallika is very excited about this assignment. Right now, she isn’t doing much except following people on Twitter so she has plenty of time on her hands. Her upcoming film Dirty Politics has already trained her in the art of politics so we won’t have to waste any time teaching her the intricacies of politics. She doesn’t mind being part of a project destined to fail either, as evident from her signing KLPD, the movie.”

Some of the slogans from Gujarat will be used too after editing them to make them appealing for Haryanvis. Instead of “Disha badlo, Dasha badlo”, it will be “Disha wahi, Dasha wahi. Gulaabi bhains pee kar vote karo, Hota usse nasha sahi!”
