Bhagwant Mann, one of the two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) parliamentarians in Punjab, is famous for his razor sharp one-liners. As for his audience, bhashanbaazi was never so much fun.
“If the Badals had their way, we would all have to use this email address: BadalBadal@Badal.com,” the 44-year-old said to a gathering recently. He also had another name for what he described as the family’s arrogance – tech giant Google would be called “Google Badal Google,” he said.
AAP’s biggest crowd magnet in Punjab – one of the country’s most popular stand-up comedians – is widely seen as the party’s chief ministerial candidate, though there has been no such announcement.
