A photo of BJP National Spokesperson Sambit Patra is doing rounds on the internet.
Taking a dig at Modi’s ‘pakoda’ statement, he can be seen sitting on the floor making Pakodas. The caption reads- “दोस्तो किसी ने सही कहाँ है जैसा बोओंगे वैसा काटोगे 😂
P M रोजगार योजना पकोडा की पहली ब्रांच खोलते हुये संबित पात्रा !”
(Translation- Friends, you reap what you sow. Sambit Patra is opening the first branch of PM employment scheme Pakoda.)
