Vo mere khilaaf haiN. Isliye opposition me haiN

Suchitra Sen strikes. Once again. The 1975 classic Aandhi. Aarti Devi (Suchitra Sen) plays a politician in the film. At a press conference, a reporter asks her a seemingly silly question

“Opposition aapke khilaaf kyoN hai?”
ऑपोसिशन आपके ख़िलाफ़ क्यों है?
Aarti answers with a witticism

Vo mere khilaaf haiN. Isliye opposition me haiN
वो मेरे ख़िलाफ़ हैं. इसलिये ऑपोसिशन मे हैं.
Seems like what we would call a circular reference in Excel. It is something that Shahrukh Khan says in Don

Don ke dushmanoN kee sabse baDee Galatee ye hai ki vo Don ke dushman haiN

Or as George Bush said on September 20th 2001 – “Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists”.

A style statement to make to reinforce your command over a particular organization/nation.
