Political Shark Tank Lok Sabha Version: |

In the͏ ͏midst of India's 2024 general election͏ frenzy, political parties ͏are intensifying ͏their campaigns to garner attention and support. The current ruling party, BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party), recently͏ released a video campaign that mocks the INDI alliance on their official ͏social media ͏handles. The video went viral sparking debate, discussions and reactions from netizens.

The campaign͏, titled 'Political Shark Tank,'͏ mimicked the format of͏ the popular TV show 'Shark Tank India,' ͏where entrepreneurs ͏pitch their business ideas to potential investors. The video spanning 2 minutes and 18 seconds portrayed dicord within INDI alliance and the selection of a common leader to lead the forth coming election.  

In the ad, politicians from the opposing INDIA alliance, such as Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Mallikarjun͏ Kharge, Aravind ͏Kejriwal, Akhilesh Yadav, Mamata Banerjee, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Tehashwi Yadav and so were caricatured pitching ͏their ͏political agendas to Shark͏ Tank judges. ͏

Rahul Gandhi, lead the discussion and presented the 'business empire' of the alliance, highlighting its nationwide ͏presence but also acknowledging recent͏͏ losses. ͏He sought assistance͏ from potential investors͏, referred͏ ͏to as 'sharks,'͏ to revive the empire.

During the ͏͏simulated ͏pitch,͏ one judge, asked about the ͏alliance's core business, ͏to͏͏͏͏ which Rahul Gandhi humorously͏ responded, 'Choona' (whitewash͏). ͏Another͏ judge͏ inquired if they manufactured ͏it, to which an ͏alliance member replied that they ͏apply ͏it. ͏Sonia Gandhi's ͏character then mentioned their past applications without success, hinting at their struggles over the past decade.

͏When questioned about offering free healthcare ͏to shareholders,͏ similar to their manifesto promises, the alliance struggled to provide a satisfactory ͏answer. They claimed ͏shareholders would͏͏ profit, but investors doubted their ͏revenue sources and ability to pay salaries. Disappointed with͏ the manifesto's ͏͏͏lack of benefits for shareholders, some investors backed out, while others expressed skepticism about the ͏alliance͏͏'͏s leadership ͏and demanded changes.

Ultimately, a ͏Judge resembling Vineeta Singh͏ made an offer with ͏three conditions: scrap ͏the manifesto, ͏halt ͏͏the 'Choona' business, and promote company leaders based on ͏merit rather than familial͏ ͏ties.

Another ͏investor ͏͏raised concerns about͏ ͏the alliance's͏ ͏significant debt of 8-1͏0͏͏ lakhs. In response, the alliance͏ deflected, suggesting they could͏ discuss it later ͏͏but͏ prioritised discussing ͏their͏͏ commission. ͏Unimpressed, ͏the investor͏ concluded that they couldn't proceed with ͏the alliance ͏and͏ asked them ͏to ͏leave.

The ad ͏concluded with a ͏B͏J͏P campaign line.͏

Netizens Reaction

The BJP's ad video went viral within minutes after publishing it with ͏many netzines reacting to it. It sparked a mixed reactions, with both applauding and criticising.

An X user, responded, "BJP is getting more creative in making such videos. Next will be KBC, I guess!"

Another user, added, "Which Judge is missing here can anyone suggest."

"Yeh waali advertising agency ko lifetime contract de do," added another X user.
