If the Congress controlled the Internet…

· They would reserve 50% of all websites in cyberspace for SC/ST/OBC.

· They would allow online voting in the Lok Sabha elections. Booth capturing and rigging could be done seamlessly.

· During protests like the anti-corruption and anti-rape ones, they would simply shut the Internet down.

· Every website would have a compulsory pop up ad praising the Dynasty.

· They would rename it as anti-social media and anti-social networking.

· Critics would then call it the Misinformation Superhighway.

· They would claim that Nehru invented the telephone, Indira the computer and Rajiv the Internet.
