New Delhi: The internet is rife with rumors that Congress party leader and RSS hand-finder Digvijaya Singh aka ‘Diggy’ is in the race to be declared the party’s PM candidate for 2014 General Elections.

In the run-up to the hotly competitive race for the top seat for 2014, Congress party is leaving no stone unturned to protect its dictatorial dynasty from vacating the country’s throne.

“We have tried it all. We have blamed Modi for almost everything- from rising onion prices, Patna serial blasts, Muzaffarnagar riots, delay in Food Security Bill, corruption, communalism, Section 377, Hritik-Suzanne split, to even KRK’s ‘Deshdrohi’, we’ve tried our best to drag Modi in everything,” explained Sanjay Jha, a Congress leader.

“Its all going nowhere. We are running out of stuff to blame Modi for,” Mr. Jha continued “Now we are planning to constitute a special committee to come up with new Modi-related controversies and link Modi to practically every problem this country is facing right now”.

In the midst of all these drawbacks, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh, who is otherwise an underdog in politics, is now finding the limelight. “Diggy’s skills in dragging Modi in every controversy will be very handy to us in 2014”, a Congress leader on condition of anonymity, told our reporter.

In the wake of rumors about Diggy being declared Congress PM candidate, the party has neither confirmed nor denied the rumors. “We have decided to test the grounds and see Diggy’s popularity first,” the anonymous Congress leader said “and if these rumors fetch some good results, we may actually declare Diggy our PM candidate”.

Pakistani PM Nawaz Sharif reacted to the rumors saying “Pakistan will be thrilled to see Digvijaya Singh as the future Prime Minister of India” signifying Diggy’s massive unrivaled popularity in Pakistan.

BJP has largely remained silent on the issue. However, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj tweeted saying, “We are looking forward to see Diggy as Congress party’s PM candidate for 2014”.

Diggy was unavailable for comment, but if sources are to be believed, Diggy is very excited about the idea of being India’s future Prime Minister.

Digvijaya Singh most respected politician in the world: PCI Survey

According to a new survey carried out by PCI (Paid Chutiyas of India), Digvijaya Singh is the most respected politician in the world.

The Survey takes into account the respect commanded by a political figure, including their portrayal in media, social networking sites, etc. and their general appeal among the citizens of a country.

The Survey was carried out, according to PCI, in association with other international organizations to compare political leaders across the globe.

“We compared our data with leaders and politicians from around the world to come to the conclusion, and Diggy emerged the clear winner”, PCI spokesperson, Mr. Khujliwala, said at the time of addressing the media.

While Congress usually distance themselves from anything tainted connected with Diggy’s name, they have welcomed this new finding.

“This once again proves that Congress has the best leaders in the world, leaders like Diggy”, remarked a Congress spokesperson to reporters on Monday.

Diggy was quick to react to this development. “This was predictable. I always knew that I am the most respected politician in the world. Now is a good time for me to be declared as the Congress party’s PM candidate”, Diggy said.

Congress usually keep Diggy at an arm's length and quickly disclaim any stupid statement Diggy makes

Though Congress has welcomed the finding, it has distanced itself from Diggy’s reactionary statement.

“We respect Diggy, but we don’t stand by his statements. Only Diggy understands what he says”, the spokesperson clarified as Congress tried to steer clear of Diggy’s comments on being declared PM candidate.

PCI’s report further went on to add that even after plenty of hardships, Diggy has managed to maintain his amazing reputation. Few years back, Diggy was diagnosed with a rare disease.

According to veteran BJP leader L. K. Advani, this is “a lesson to both BJP and Congress”. “BJP should learn some political skills from Diggy”, Advani further wrote in his blog.

Many prominent global leaders have been featured in the list compiled in the survey. Three-time Italian Prime Minster  Silvio Berlusconi came in at second place, just after Diggy.

Many political analysts have called the findings of the survey ‘flawed’.

Hafiz Saeed was juvenile in 2008, claims Diggy

In what can be seen as a rare gesture of friendship, Congress leader Digvijay Singh has come out in support of Pakistani terrorist and LeT chief Hafiz Saeed. Diggy has extended a hand (or rather, a paw) of friendship to Hafiz Saeed, mastermind of 2008 attacks, by claiming that the latter was a juvenile in 2008.

“Hafiz Saeed sahab should be excused for the November 2008 Mumbai attacks because he was a juvenile”, claimed Diggy.  Diggy wasted no time in extending his paws of support to Pakistani terrorist and LeT chief Hafiz Saeed soon after Diggy came to know that juveniles are at liberty to commit whatever heinous crimes they want in India.

This comes after Muhammad Afroz was ruled to be a juvenile by the Juvenile Justice Board even after his horrific role in the 2012 December 16 gang-rape case.

“Mr. Hafiz Saeed sahab was a juvenile during 2008 Mumbai attacks. He did not know what he was doing as he was just a child. He should be reformed and pardoned”, Diggy further elaborated.

Hafiz Saeed has taken Diggy’s statements very favorably. “Yes I was a juvenile in 2008. I can produce a birth certificate to prove it. Mr. Diggy is right”, Hafiz said happily. (Hafiz Saeed also fondly refers to Digvijay Singh as ‘Diggy’ now)

Pakistan has officially sent a birth certificate showing Hafiz’s birth date as March 10, 1999. Under this certificate, Hafiz would have been 9 years of age in 2008.

“I was just a child in 2008, I was only 9 years old. I was playing with my dolls when Mumbai terror attacks were happening”, Hafiz Saeed said to a local Pakistani news channel after Pakistan officially sent his birth certificate to New Delhi in a dossier.

Following this, Indian PM Manmohan Singh has made a strong statement. “We will not let Hafiz Saeed go scot-free even if he is juvenile. We have requested Pakistan to extradite Hafiz Saeed to India so we can send him to a juvenile remand home”, was PM’s official statement. However, after finishing, the PM asked someone behind the camera “Theek Hai?” just to make sure he said  everything right.
