They want him as fall guy, not as campaign leader

This powerful sibling of the deposed strongman was required to languish in a state-run lodge, but he managed to enjoy a good rest in reasonable comfort on a hospital bed. Now that he is as free as the wind, is in the thick of the election campaign with all his heart and soul to ensure his elder sibling’s comeback to power. 

Several stalwarts of Betel leaf alliance found in this sibling when he was down and out a convenient fall guy to blame for all sins of their regime and they are unhappy that the guy is back in the saddle calling the shots in the poll campaign.

Most disconcerted over once powerful sibling’s comeback to the political scene is the showy patriot of the farce-unto-death fame and he urged the former strongman to call an immediate halt to his sibling’s proposed campaign round in the Trinco district. 

The former strongman, who is heavily indebted to the ‘patriot’ for his consistent support and loyalty had immediately contacted his sibling, but found that he was already on the campaign trail in Trinco. 

During the telephone conversation that ensued between the two siblings, the one in Trinco had said: “I am trying to infuse new life into our party. If I am not wanted, I shall immediately leave for home.”

The sibling who kept his word is now enjoying an enforced rest, they say.
