One very respected liberal intellectual based out of Delhi long back once was narrating how cleverly the left parties particularly the CPM manipulated votes in an election. He said they had refined rigging to a fine art. In Kolkata's bhadrolok areas they would hire prostitutes (sorry sex workers) from Sonagachhi to just come stand near the poling booths and start abusing each other in the filthiest possible manner. These bhadrolok areas were the ones were CPM was sure of not getting votes. The poor bhadrolok man and woman would step out to vote but seeing (and hearing) such ugly scene near the poking booth would turn his back, go home without casting any vote.

This is only an example of the sophistication achieved by one side whether it is rigging or fake news or distortion of facts. The other side about whom people are so concerned is only learning the tricks now. They are crude. They get caught. Give them some time. They will be as smart ad the other side very soon. Each and everything that one side criticises about the lately arrived johney's on the other side, the johney'shave learnt from them. What are you crying foul about?

And we the so called educated are being made fools. The smarter ones are either using you or you  have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo of last 75 years.
