Such is the stench in Patna these days that India’s President has already cancelled his Patna visit.
And L.K. Advani is staying away.
The reason being Narendra Modi is coming here to address a Hunkar rally at Patna’s Gandhi maidan to enthuse his supporters with his new slogan “Pehle Shauchalaya, Phir Devalaya !” (First Toilets, Then Temples)
Already sanitaryware shops at Exhibition road have seen an increase in their sales.
BJP workers have been shopping for commodes in their thousands….
Most have been looking for saffron coloured commodes informs one shopkeeper, but we have mostly white.
One wanted a commode with Narendra Modi’s face on it but we told him those are designer commodes and we have only one piece – a Robert Mugabe commode.
Some have been looking for Japanese commodes which give out patriotic jingles every time you flush.
One customer has bought a special commode to gift it to Modiji…its called “The Hot Seat’…after all Modiji wants to be India’s Prime Minister…
An inner-circle BJP member wanted a bomb-proof commode with bullet proof glasses around it, afterall Modiji is on a hit list….
But sanitary shops are aware that for BJP members from rural Bihar they would need toilets just as it is at home…so they have like one designed like a railway track fitted with nat sound and vibrations of an approaching Rajdhani train !
Another shop has one called “The Maidan’…just wheat crops !
With computers so popular i-pots are also in demand.
I asked a BJP worker about Modi’s toilet interest and he informed, “Modiji was the sevak responsible for digging up Bombay’s Mahalaxmi Racecourse for the Maharally by building the thousand of holed toilets.!”
