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.
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.
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’.
