Netaji falls in borewell

The Great FallJhunjhunu, Rajasthan. While campaigning for Assembly Elections, a politician fell in a borewell here and has got stuck in the well since then. Rescue team and police have reached the spot and attempts are on to pull out the politician identified as Teznayan Gujjar, an independent candidate secretly backed by Congress. Thirteen hours and thirty nine minutes had passed since Mr. Gujjar fell in the borewell and he was still stuck there when reports last came in.

Rescue officer Mr. Bachao Shekhawat informed us that Mr. Gujjar was still alive as people could hear his speeches coming out of the borewell. It was not clear what Mr. Gujjar was trying to convey through his speeches from inside the well due to echo effect, but it is believed that he was crying for help and accusing someone for keeping the borewell open.

According to eye-witnesses, Netaji had seen a little kid playing near borewell and had run towards the kid and fell in the borewell that was uncovered. While supporters of Netaji claim that Mr. Gujjar had run to save the kid as he feared him falling in the borewell, his political opponents say that Gujjar was on his way to perform his usual gimmick of lifting a kid in his arms to be popular among the locals. Police had no opinion or knowledge on how Mr. Gujjar fell in the borewell.

Mr. Gujjar had gone to campaign in the area where government has been digging a borewell for the last five years, apparently to provide water to the locals as the area is drought prone. According to government sources, the borewell would have been completed today had Netaji (Mr. Gujjar) not fallen inside. They fear that now the water level could go down after this incident. Faking News asked for the basis for such fears but they refused to divulge further.

Meanwhile a parallel borewell was being dug to reach out to Mr. Gujjar and pull him out. It was rather surprising to us that the same machines and people could dig a parallel borewell so fast while they took almost five years to dig the original one. Faking News also fears that the whole attempt could go waste as the radius of the parallel borewell was smaller than radius of Netaji’s potbelly and he could again get stuck while pulling out.

Amidst all this, politics has got heated in Rajasthan over the incident. Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia was reported to have told that Congress was behind the incident and that Mr. Gujjar was paid huge sum of money to fall in the well. She suspected foul play as she refused to believe that a grown up person could fall in a borewell when a little kid was playing safely in the same area.

“Mr. Gujjar was on a mission to carry out a fidaayeen (suicide) attack against the government. Congress wanted to malign the name of the government for keeping the borewells open and at the same time they conspired to block the borewell by putting Mr. Gujjar inside it. They knew the development work by BJP was about to complete and they have conspired to deny water to the locals.” Ms. Raje warned that borewell politics won’t succeed in Rajasthan. She denied that keeping the borewell open was any issue as people in Rajasthan have never faced threats from borewells unlike other areas of the country.

Congress has vehemently denied these allegations and has accused BJP of doing nothing for locals who are truly represented by Mr. Gujjar. Congress workers and supporters of Mr. Gujjar are in turn accusing BJP of digging borewells to trap genuine leaders like Netaji. They claimed that the land, where borewell was being dug, belonged to BJP member Chuli Meena, who has been absconding since Netaji fell inside. Mr. Gujjar’s supporters have threatened to launch ‘rail todo’ agitation if he is not pulled out within next nine hours.

Away from politics, Faking News asks its readers to send ‘get well soon’ messages to 6969 and pray with us for Netaji’s survival.
