After Congress’s defeat in the Delhi MCD polls, former Minister of IT, Telecom and Shipping, Milind Deora posted lyrics of a song on his Twitter account which had led to many speculations among social media users. Deora posted a song by a famous alternate rock band Coldplay, and the lyrics go like: “How long am I gonna stand, With my head stuck under the sand? I’ll start before I can stop Before I see things the right way up.” The lyrics are a famous song by Coldplay, called ‘Speed of Sound’. While the song is considered to be inspirational and about self-discovery, twitter was left wondering if it is an indirect message by Deora to Congress or maybe AAP’s Arvind Kejriwal.
According to the current trends in MCD election results, BJP is likely to gain a two-thirds majority and set to rule all the three municipal corporations in Delhi- the EDMC, NDMC and SDMC.

Meanwhile, famous journalist Rana Ayyub replied to Deora’s tweet, saying, “now wait till they allude this to Arvind Kejriwal.” There were many questions posted by Twitter users, as a response to Deora’s tweet, asking him whether the song is an indication towards Arvind Kejriwal. There were many who accepted that the tweet was a ‘message’ to either Congress or AAP. They said that appeasement politics is the reason that heads are ‘stuck under the sand’. A few fans asked the reason for Congress’ frustration, and requested the party to ‘solve the puzzle’. Some of the people said that in order for Congress to ‘see things the right way up’, it needs to provide a better alternative than vice president Rahul Gandhi.
How long am I gonna stand
With my head stuck under the sand?
I’ll start before I can stop
Before I see things the right way up

Meanwhile, taking ‘responsibility for the defeat’, Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken offered to resign from his post. Aam Aadmi Party has refused to accept the loss as many top leaders have blamed EVMs for the results. BJP President Amit Shah has congratulated people of Delhi and said the results have shown that voters have faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership.
