Rahul-ji is not to blame for the debacle.

But who’s blaming him?

You mean you aren’t?

Well, no. But now that you’re mentioning him...

No, no. I meant Rahul Dravid. He’s to blame for the Indian team losing Test matches one after the other.

Oh okay. But about Uttar Pradesh, who’s responsible for the Congress debacle then?

Debacle? We’ve increased our seat share by six seats! Without Rahul-ji, we would have got no more than 12.

Rahul Gandhi or Rahul Dravid?

Um, neither. I meant Rahul Bajaj.

But didn’t Rahul Gandhi play any part at all then in these assembly elections?

Of course he did. The people of Manipur have firmly given the mandate for Rahul-ji to become prime minister.

Rahul Gandhi, right?

Obviously. Which other Rahul do you think I’m talking about?!

Don’t say: Didn’t Rahul own up to being responsible for his party’s bad show in UP?

Do say: Great beard, Rahul!
