3. Rahul Gandhi – “If you’re ever doubting the relationship, ask yourself one question – ‘Mazza aya?'”


4. Amit Shah – “You like her – She rejects you – You call her anti-national. Aap chronology samjhiye.”


5. Sambit Patra – “Say these three magic words to her and she’ll be yours – ‘Namaste, biscuit khao!'”


6. Mamata Banerjee – “Aage porashona koro, tar pore relationship-bhelationship hobe!”
