Vamshi Krishna

Making or creating a joke is a bit tough task for many. One needs to have an idea, a punch line to create a joke. But when it comes to Indian politicians, this process becomes damn simple for anyone. Content is delivered at your doorstep in the form of things that they say or things that happen with them.

For example, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. He has been on the radar of trollers, and his actions/words have more potential for jokes than an entire episode of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.

Kejriwal is in the news yet again, and this time for a rather miserable reason. It is his iconic blue Wagon-R. The car got stolen near Secretariat yesterday afternoon (October 12).

The Wagon R, gifted by an Indian living abroad, was dubbed the “AAP Mobile” and got plenty of mileage in the news when the Chief Minister used it to camp and sleep in during a controversial protest against the Delhi Police in 2014.

The blue car was used by the Aam Aadmi Party or AAP to demonstrate its commitment to fighting VIP culture and of standing with the little guy. It was used by Mr. Kejriwal during his campaign for the first election he contested; it remained his vehicle of choice when he was first made Chief Minister.

While the chief minister has made no direct comment on the situation yet, he did retweet a remark questioning the Delhi Police’s alertness.

Following reports of the car going missing, the Aam Aadmi Party took a veiled dig at the Centre saying that Delhi lieutenant governor Anil Baijal, who reports to the central government, “should focus more on law and order” in the national capital than on “holding up files”.

People on the internet, who earn validation through jokes, pounced on this opportunity. Memes and jokes started flowing across the internet and here are some of the funniest ones:

Twitter Reactions:

Kejriwal’s blue WagonR had become synonymous with his ‘common man’ image. These days, it was being used by a functionary of the AAP’s media cell.
