412 days later, Karnataka and its political scenario, is where it started on May 23rd, 2018, the day JD(S) leader Kumaraswamy was sworn into power- square one.
After a fatwa (religious opinion) was issued against her, Actor turned politician Nusrat Jahan took to her twitter page and reacted to the controversy surrounding her. The actress was targeted for wearing sindhoor and mangalsutra at Lok Sabha while she was taking oath into the Lower House.
When the elections were underway, Opposition leaders in India claimed that EVMs were rigged or were programmed in such a way that votes were directed to BJP or their allies, but two day ahead of the results and two days after the exit polls, the Spooked opposition has come up with a new charge, ‘EVM swapping’. Claiming reserve EVMs machine are being transported to EC strongrooms.
Right after Balakot Airstrikes took, Karnataka BJP chief predicted a win on 22 seats out of the 28 seats from the southern state. If exit polls are to be believed that BJP will win no less than 17 seats in Karnataka. This also marks the end of JDS’ political aspirants as Congress will now stop letting it dictate terms. Plus there is a big suspense over who wins Mandya, If Sumalatha wins then it’s a big upset for JDS chief HD Devegowda’s grandson Nikhil
It is the seventh phase of polling in the Lok Sabha elections and like every responsible citizen Farhan Akhtar took to Twitter to appeal to voters to cast their votes. But instead of receiving praise for his effort, the actor was laughed at and scorned at. But why?
Well for starters the actor took on BJP’s Bhopal candidate Pragya Thakur, so of course BJP supporters were to counter the actor, but the actor also made a glaring factual error
While asking voters from Bhopal to not to vote for BJP, the actor made a fool out of himself as the constituency already witnessed polling last week.
The actor was also slammed for being insensitive. His usage of the phrase ‘full-of-gas’ also irked many as they believed it was disrespectful towards the victims of Bhopal Gas Tragedy.
Here is how the Twitterati responded to Farhan’s gaffe.
Hours later Farhan responded to his trolls, saying that while many ‘held his neck for getting the date wrong, those who got history wrong were welcomed with open arms’
