But then, Football is much like Indian politics... Don't believe us? Here are four reasons why football is just like Indian Politics1. In Football, you keep Passing the Ball. In Indian Politics, You keep Passing the Buck.2. Finally, In Football, if you accidentally hit the ball into your own goalpost, its called a Self Goal and your team loses. Indian Politics has its own â€œSelf Goalâ€ team.3. In Football players commit Fouls. In Indian Politics, Fouls are called â€œViolations of Model Code of Conduct.â€4. In Football, players who commit Fouls are issued Yellow Cards as a Warning, by the referee. In Indian Politics, if you Violate the Model Code, The Election Commission issues a Warning.
