Govinda and Dawood - of Gods and demons
BBC NEWS South Asia India MP in TV 'most wanted' row
So a TV channel aired footage of actor-turned-politician (buffoon-turned-imbecile) Govinda meeting Dawood in Dubai, which the joker claims is 16 years old. Of all the things to crucify this worthless politican, this seems to be the kindest.
Replacing veteran BJP MP Ram Naik, this cretin got a ticket from the Congress and won the elections from Virar, which is his home-town. But hey - he's also got a plush bungalow in Juhu. The joker was last in the news for mysteriously vanishing when a 15km thick cloud gave 944mm of rain in the suburbs of Bombay. Thankfully, he was hounded by the news channel and in interviews he did what he does best - put his foot in his mouth. Sample this - Our Honourable MP thought that PIL, which stands for Public Interest Litigation, meant Public Relations Officer.
Then, finally sick of it all, he decided to quit. Probably someone reminded him that he'll earn..sorry, make more money in politics than in the film industry (no one sees his movies anyways), prompting him to change his mind.

Bombay's been let down by the same politicians elected by its own sick and tired populace. If this so-called scandal can get rid of Govinda, surely its for the best.
