Funniest Political Slogan I've ever Heard

Many things get lost in translation and I am not sure if I can capture the humour correctly but I hope you will get the gist.

Laloo Prasad Yadav is one of the most quirky politicians in . He has got an opinion about everything and his speeches are quite funny. During a recent in Bihar state of India, he raised a slogan:

jab tak rahega samosay may Aloo,

tab tak rahega Bihar may Laloo

Roughly translated it means: As long as there are boiled potatoes in crispy fried samosas, Laloo Prasad will be present in Bihar.

It seems the people liked his spicy because his alliance won quite a landslide victory over the ruling BJP party.

Well, just your picture of the samosas make me hungry. And I like potatoes in them. So, I guess he gets my vote! *laugh* And You get my vote for a great article!

That IS funny. And looking at the words you provided, it looks like the words are "Aloo" = potatoes? and Laloo is his name, so he is making a pun of his own name?

Fried samosas? If I were voting he could have gotten my vote! :)

Is this slogan in Hindu or in the Urdu language?

This is actually Urdu which is widely spoken in India as well as in Pakistan. Paulie

Well, that is one of his funny quotes.But he is waiting to be Prime Minister of India.There is another quote by him-''I do not rule out the possibility of being prime minister of India one day, but there is still time.'' Hope,that never happens!

If I got the correct gist then this politician follows his tummy. I've never had a samosa but judging by the picture it's similar to wontons, correct?
