Indian elections are normally a very colorful affair so I wasn’t surprised one bit when I saw the launch of the “Recession Party” to fight the forthcoming Indian parliamentary elections. Jaspal Bhatti is a very popular comedian in India, who launched the Recession Party last Monday and is banking on the votes of fools.
He says that he will not divide voters along the lines of religion, caste, color or race, but, rather along the lines of foolish and intelligent voters. He doesn’t want the votes of the intelligent voters, who vote corrupt politician to power, pay the price for it, and then do the same thing all over again. He wants the votes of only foolish voters; he has mine.

Glad you liked it SVB. He is quite good and has done a lot of satire in the past as well.
Thanks Manshu! Very interesting video. I like how the comedian is taking a stand against status quo.
