With an unprecedented chain of events, involving the barter of kins from one party to another, these General Elections have turned up to promote ‘Mahabharat’.
While Namonarayan Meena, former cabinet minister in UPA 2, fights against his real brother, Harishchandra Meena in Dausa(Rajasthan), Congress party thinks it has scored big with former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s niece, Karuna Shukla. She is running for the Lok Sabha membership from Madhya Pradesh. We all know what Uddhav and Raj Thackrey have been upto since the formation of the MNS in 2006.
In the chain of events when brothers are fighting against each other, PM Manmohan Singh’s half brother, Daljeet Singh Kohli mysteriously joins the BJP.
These series of events remind me of the epic tale of Mahabharat, and the phrase ‘Kingship knows no Kinship’.
