As election fever is gripping the country, late satirist and comedian Jaspal Bhatti's widow "floated" a 'NOTA' party on Tuesday.

Bhatti's Nonsense Club too joined in the fray with the NOTA party.

'NOTA', which stands for 'None Of The Above', is an option available to voters who do not want to vote in favour of any candidate standing for a particular constituency.

Bhatti's widow Savita also extended invitation to all scam-tainted politicians to join her party. She, along with her team members, performed a spoof at Commercial Sector 17 Plaza in Chandigarh.

Holding currency notes in their hands the group sang a jingle to attract the attention of the crowd.

Savita announced that her NOTA party believed in policy of divide and rule. "We want to divide the corrupt and the honest and rule over the country. The minimum qualification to join the party will be a scam worth Rs 200 crore and those having at least 25 criminal cases against them," she said.

"Nowadays it's easy to find the corrupt so very soon all such elements from other parties would join us," she claimed.

The event and the satire on the political parties comes after Savita's failed attempt to join politics.

She was announced Aam Aadmi Party's candidate from Chandigarh, but she withdrew claiming infighting in the local party unit.

Bhatti was known for floating his political parties during elections to highlight the problems faced by the general public.

Bhatti died in a car accident near Shahkot in Nakodar area of Jalandhar district on October 25, 2012 when he was aged 57.
