The Congress President wants all to know,

That she is destined to be country's Numero Uno.

Other than being someone's 'bahu',

She never featured in any Who's Who,

And still doesn't know if she is a Gandhi or a Maino!

  The Election Commission has gagged opinion polls,

So the candidates giving out doles,

Food, sweets and booze,

Saris, dhotis and shoes,

Do not know for whom the bell tolls.

  The situation in Anantnag

Saw BJP's morale sag.

The candidate was changed,

And a press meet arranged,

Which only let the cat out of the bag.
