New Delhi: There's no dearth of drama when it comes to Indian politics, be it in the real arena or even online. This election season, the internet is going viral with 'Pappu-Feku' spoofs.

While the election fever is reaching its peak with mega rallies and grand road shows, the election frenzy is not limited to streets. Just like the provocative political speeches, the janata on the internet spares no one. From 'Pappu' to 'Feku' to the 'Nayak', everyone is a target.

Delhi Chief Minister of 49 days Arvind Kejriwal seems to be the hot favourite in the spoof market. From a cool rapper to the tragic Tragediwal, he has got all the attention.

Bharatiya Janata Party Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is not too far behind. Modi, the 'Superhero', is also quite an Internet sensation.

The Congress party's popularity may be waning in the real world, but its Vice President Rahul Gandhi is a hit on the world wide web.

Beyond the accusations, the promises and the name calling, this is the lighter side of the 2014 elections. Love them or hate them, you just can't ignore them!
