What funny answers?

Mr. Sher Bahadur Deuba is a senior leader of Nepali Congress party, a major party in Nepal's coalition government, also leading the government. He has served as a prime minister of Nepal three times. He has filed his candidacy from two constituencies. He was the chief person of selection committee of candidates for the constituent assembly election in his party and he has selected his wife Dr. Arju Deuba Rana as proportional candidate. In a recent interview for Kantipur media he has answered many questions. But I found following answers are so funny. They don't make any sense to the questions asked to him.

Q. Why are you contesting the polls from two constituencies?
Sher Bahadur Deuba:
Prachanda is also contesting from two constituencies. Madhav Nepal, too, has chosen two constituencies. This could be why my party colleagues asked me to contest the polls from two constituencies and I agreed. (He is doing same what others are doing. He doesn't know whether its wrong or right. no justification!!!!!!)

Q. Or was it because of the lack of confidence to win?
It’s not that. Girija babu, too, used to contest from two constituencies.(He should say he doesn't have confidence to win. Question was about whether he has confidence or not, he replied as what Girija babu used to do. May be he wants to show he is equivalent to Girija babu)

Q. Aren’t there any hurdles?
Don’t know. This is like asking if the sky will fall!(Is really having hurdles in election sky fall?)

Q. You were against nepotism in the past but your wife Arju Deuba’s name is in the party’s proportional candidates’ name list. What do you have to say about this? Deuba: After friends and colleagues asked me to keep her name, I said okay. Besides, she has also worked in the social sector. She is not just a housewife. Actually she didn’t have any desire to contest the elections nor did she ask for the ticket. Because everyone asked for it. (What a nonsense justification)

Q. Aren’t you dragging her into politics? Deuba: It’s not like that. When I’m not with her, she makes time to meet people and listen to them despite her busy schedule. The need for women has come, educated women are needed. It’s not that she doesn’t deserve it. She’s educated, has done a PHD.
