Aiming at the most recent issue plaguing the world today-recession and blending it with politics, Jaspal Bhatti launched the Recession Party on Monday. Bhatti, accompanied with wife Savita, a battery of supporters and a music band, announced the launch of the party at the Sector-17 Plaza.
Playing the beats of Tauba ye recession, tauba berozgar, tera political attyachar, Bhatti with his trademark sense of humour, confessed that he had launched the party to improve his financial health and said the party's motto is to open as many slums in Chandigarh so that he can win an Oscar.
He added that he would not spend a single penny on the elections. Inviting funds for his party, Bhatti said: "Funds from any party that wants to cut their opponent's votes are welcome. Those who want to make pre-poll alliance deals with our party may also fund us."
The Recession Party will also field a candidate for the post of prime minister. "Those who support us now with their sweat, soul and money will be given ample chance to reap the benefits when we come to power. They will get to enjoy everything with the public fund," he said. He added, "We hope all jobless, out of business and underpaid people will create our vote bank."
As a huge crowd gathered to listen to him, Bhatti said he would prove more ineffective that all the past MPs of Chandigarh. "Hum unse bhi zyada nikamme sabit hoke dikhayegne," he said. The party would release its manifesto, which he warned would only be a customary exercise and the public should not believe in what they say in the document. Others who were present on the occasion included Vinod Sharma, Lally Gill, Brijesh Ahuja and Gurtej Tej. They vowed to stand by the party leader on the condition they all would get prominent posts.
