A HAPPY NEW YEAR for a billion plus Indians, thanks to ‘Mitrooon’ Comic Modi, in otherwise in horrible times. His national address on the eve of new year is non-stop comedy show, what with millions of social media enthusiasts working overtime.
‘Mitron’ was most expected word from Modi or Modi Speech. A Delhi pub announced it would offer drinks to its customers for Rs 31 only, every time the PM uttered the ‘magical’ word. Apart from the looming disappointment about ‘Mitron’, Twitter was flooded with pregnancy jokes after prime minister announced monetary assistance to pregnant ladies.
One user wrote, “Pregnant women will get 6000 bucks for childbirth. That’s what you call ‘Cash on delivery'”.

One who begins his career as villain (Gujarat carnage) turned hero (PM of India) is now a stand-up comedian, with due apologies to real comedians.

Full of slapstick ‘deMon’ tragic-comedy combined with 200 deaths.
But hear Mr.Dosanjh, who is former Premier of British Columbia, and former Canadian Minister of Health. “Domestically and internationally, the Modi government is stumbling from one blunder to another. While demonetisation wreaks havoc on the economy and ... India suffers in horrible poverty, Modi government, in the true Marie Antoinette fashion of “let them eat cake”, is promising the tallest statues of steel, marble and stone. Under these terrible circumstances, Indians ... rising up in vigorous and peaceful protests in the country, to chart a new course for India is the greatest gift they could give to themselves and the country.” Indian Express- December 30, 2016.
