Union territory imposes sanctions on state

In an unprecedented, and certainly unconstitutional move, the great Union Territory of Daman and Diu has imposed economic sanctions on its neighbour, the great state of Maharashtra. The surprise decision, which sent news channels into a tizzy with its avant garde-ness and boldness, was taken after Maharashtra decided not to export 10 MW of power to the little union territory. "Our economic end electrical needs are not being met by our neighbour, Maharashtra. Therefore, we are forced to make this decision" announced shri Amit Agarwal, Chief Electoral Officer of UT of Daman & Diu, which is known to have no significant economic relationship with Maharashtra. Maharashtra, unperturbed by this decision, is said to have simply issued the following statement in protest:- "What the fuck do they need 10 megawatts for??"

"Snatched back from the Portuguese in 1961, Daman and Diu were clumped together with Goa till 1987, when Goa was granted statehood," remarked ace former Karnataka Ranji cricketer Somashekhar Shiraguppi, surprising many with his acute perusal of Wikipedia and also his unexpected appearance in news items. Though this observation had nothing to do with recent events, it stirred memories of the Emergency in aspiring prime minister L K Advani, as usual. "In 19...75, Mrs. Gandhi imposed the Emergency. So, in 1961, she was still fourteen years away from imposing the Emergency," he mused, tearfully, while preparing for a "Just-A-Minute" competition with former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee. The competition, to be held in November, is expected to take a really long time to complete, significantly more than a minute. In the pause taken by Mr. Advani between his utterances of "19" and "75," four people died of tense expectation and bated breath, while three others were injured in riots.
