Uttar Pradesh: With BJP registering massive gains in Uttar Pradesh, Congress party was found secretly wishing for an Oscar like goof-up after their alliance failed to create any magic.
The Academy awards saw the biggest embarrassment in its history after presenters read out the wrong envelope mentioning La La Land as the winner, which was later corrected to Moonlight.
Not wanting to concede defeat, Congress Party is hoping that a similar envelope would emerge from somewhere that will declare the party winner in UP assembly elections.
Congress VP Rahul Gandhi himself was confident that his party would be declared winner after the correct envelope would be read out.
Many Congress workers were already seen distributing sweets in anticipation. “Humein aasha hai ki Rahulji ka Made in Jaunpur ka sapna zaroor poora hoga. Bas ab intezaar hai sahi lifafa aane ka,” said the party spokesperson.
There was a momentary panic in the BJP camp after news of such an envelope made the rounds. But the fears were allayed later after the counting concluded with no sign of any changes in the result.
Meanwhile, Congress Party was seen telling its SP counterparts to find a good excuse for the dismal results and that it was not a reflection of Rahul Gandhi’s leadership.
