    NEW DELHI: After its disastrous performance, senior Congress leaders are gunning for Dentsu, the Japanese communication agency which handled the party's poll advertising account.
    Congress hired Dentsu for nearly Rs 600 crore. One of its primary objectives was to position Rahul Gandhi as a young and dynamic leader out to empower the common man. But the Congress campaign failed to match the BJP ad blitz, which was handled by Piyush Pandey, Prasoon Joshi and Sam Balsara.
    "Dentsu cannot be absolved of the blame for the debacle. They not only charged a premium for the creatives, but they also released ads at an abnormally high premium in connivance with various media houses," a senior Congress leader alleged.
    A Dentsu India spokesperson countered the charge. "All the financial negotiations were in line with the services we had committed to offer via a rigorous and transparent process, and agreed to before the commencement of the campaign. Apart from Dentsu India, there was another agency hired by Congress for ad releases. All rates... were tripartite involving the client, agency and media houses/third-party service provider."
    A senior Congress leader also alleged that Dentsu India executive chairman Rohit Ohri had a heated argument with Congress leader Ajay Maken over the same issue. Subsequently, all Dentsu employees in India received an email, which forbade them from talking to the media.
    While Maken was not available for comment, in an emailed response, the Dentsu spokesperson said, "We do not disclose any client information adhering to the confidentiality norms and the non-disclosure agreement signed between the client and the agency which is still in effect. Similarly, as per our company code of conduct, Dentsu executives are not authorized to speak on any of our clients."

    Great!

    Now, all they have to do is blame the Nation and the Voters!

    That will complete the circle!

    While the real losers and coots are the Gandhis who will never never resign!

    They are God's gift to humanity as per the sycophants of the Congress!

    So mousy and lousy are the Gandhis that their ego does not permit them to even head the Parliament as the leader and instead has given it to Kamal Nath with a coc.k and bull fairy tale like justification of 9 times elect for people to believe.

    Madam and Yuv boy, India and the voters have graduated, We are not prone to lies or enamoured by the spun fantasy that the Nation loves the Nehru Gandhi (as per Soorjewallah).

    The election has proved that they DONT love or even like you. Not even the Muslims or Dalits or whatever others because they have seen your game through.

    Go and go fast and let the Congress revive to its pristine glory.

    I sincerely hope that the Congress loses all elections with a drubbing so that it give the sycophants the reality and the Congress exorcise themselves.

    Pilot and Scindia are the hopes and they are way better than you dear darling son.

    Got that Mama dear?

    No surprise... the so called "I take responsibility" is a crap.

    Blaming "voters" is a really outrageous and arrogant idea.Seems like Congress didn't learn even a single lesson why VOTERS trashed them to their lowest shameful defeat.

    This fake "Gandhi" family needs to be kicked outta India now because of their shameless BLAMING and FOOLING voters while they have accumulated all the black money and putting it in foreign banks.

    I hope next time Congress gets 0 vote.

    :rofl: :rofl: whom to blame ? Dentsu or Rahul ?

    Our doubts were true, now Dentsu itself needs image make over because it tried to make Rahul's image.

    hahahahaha Congress:rofl::laugh::laugh:

    Rahul & Sonia :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Why Rahul is called Pappu ,

    Below are few comments he has made in some interviews.

    “We go into this model where you have the one guy who will come and fix everything. He is going to come on a horse, that’s the model, that’s the Indian model. He is going to come on the horse, the Sun is in the background. There are a billion people waiting. He is coming and everything is going to be fine. No. It’s not going to work like that.”


    “It is very difficult to stop every single terror attack. We will stop 99% terror attacks but 1 % of attacks might get through.”


    “Every situation that Indian person finds himself in is extremely complex. We have to deal with the red lights. As young leaders here have to deal with senior leaders, suddenly someone disrupts your entire life. Everything happens, sort of, according to your karma; it’s all random.”
    “I went to University in 1991, and I remember, nobody thought of India. I remember conversations where people would laugh and say, “Do you have elephants on the road?” Nobody is saying that today.”

    “Politics is everywhere.. it is in your shirt.. in your pants.. everywhere.”

    “If you go back a hundred, two hundred years, you would find that India is energy; it is a force. If you go back a thousand years, two thousand years, you would find that force came from our rivers: Ganga, Yamuna, Saraswati. We worshiped these rivers and the reason we worshiped these rivers was because that is where our energy came from, and everything we had was built on these rivers. Now, we have gone way beyond that. We have built structures that are allowing this energy to rise, to explode.”



    “China is referred to as the ‘dragon’ and India as an ‘elephant’. But we are not an elephant, we are a ‘beehive’.”
    “You go to a nightclub somewhere in Spain and there’s Amitabh Bachchan on the screen there, dancing around. That’s the power of India.”

    “If I am incompetent, I am useless, the people of India will see that.”

    India has some good advertising and media management companies..

    It seems they did not learn anything from "India Shining" campaign conducted by "Grey Worldwide" ... Rs 150 crores campaign that time !!

    If one has folks line Amaresh Mishra, G Surya etc defending Congress in SM, and Jha on TV, this result is hardly surprising.

    One of the reasons ComCon LOST BADLY is because of idiotic shameless Sanjay Jhalla type spokesperson who are unapologetic about even serious of mistakes.

    ComCon = Communal Congress

    BJP's catchy 15-second cartoon ads conveyed more content that Congress' 60-second elaborate emo song.

    That, and they had butt-head spokespersons who were just repulsive to watch.

    Hehe, and Congress is built on "swadeshi" principals. It took swadeshi marketers to pwn those Japs.

    Not just Sanjay Jhalla but the ComCon women brigade is no less.

    The likes of Ami Yagnik,Rita Bahuguna,Ragini etc are just a bunch of street fighters who keeps blabbering like a "gawar aurat" and keeps defending ComCon and don't allow other to speak at all.

    Seems like ComCon didn't learn any lesson after their shameless defeat of all time. They still want the ma-beta-behan trio to be parasite on them.

    Why do you take the names of Ami Yagnik,Rita Bahuguna,Ragini?

    Caterwauling cats at best.

    Yagnik is as stupid as Sanjay Jha.

    Rita is lower jaw out senseless wonder totally serving the Mother Son duo

    And the other one, Ragini, speaks as if brains has gone past the expiry date.

    The Congress should blame the voters. They wrested themselves from the total maya that had been spun all these years since Independence.

    They have seen light!
