Snippets

BJP to install camera, like one on IPL umpire's head, on Ramdev to monitor his utterances

New Delhi. Embarrassed by his latest utterances, where he ended up insulting dalits while trying to mock Rahul Gandhi, BJP has decided to keep a constant eye over Baba Ramdev, and other similar mouthed leaders.

Sources say that the party has decided to fix a camera on Baba Ramdev’s head, which will live telecast everything he does and says. This will allow BJP to issue clarifications and spins on Baba’s statements in advance, much before they turn into raging controversies on TV and Twitter.

“We are not snooping on him,” BJP leader Amit Shah clarified, “We are just making sure things don’t go out of control when polling is in the last phases. It’s just a security measure to save Baba from ferocious critics.”

BJP may use a heavier camera to restrict Baba's movements.

“We respect individual freedom and that’s why we are not asking Baba to shut up,” he added.

The news soon reached Congress High Command, who were quick to jump to the defense of Baba Ramdev for the first time terming it a fascist usage of technology.

“This is attack on privacy of a person who is is showing signs of turning secular with his actions. Ramdev may have said a thing or two about Rahul Gandhi Ji, but we all took it sportingly,” Digvijay Singh said as he extended an olive branch to Baba Ramdev urging him to forget past and start afresh.

As the development started inviting reactions from all quarters, Ex-BCCI chief N Srinivasan too came out of his bunker, demanding royalty from BJP for using a technology which he claimed was brainchild of IPL and BCCI.

Sources tell Faking News that DDCA president Arun Jaitely was immediately sent an SOS by BJP, who later flew down from Amritsar to Chennai, and calmed N Srinivasan down.

Meanwhile according to insiders, an experimental run of the idea failed miserably, as 90% of the time Baba Ramdev was in some weird position, making it impossible for the BJP to decipher and understand what was happening from that angle.
