According to a report by The Indian Express, the party workers of BJP at the 50,128 booths in Gujarat plans to join and listen “Mann Ki Baat, Chai Ke Saath” at their respective booths.

This exercise is aimed at establishing a direct dialogue with the people.”

The BJP leader said the Opposition party always undermines the strength of the common man. His response was apparently referring to the Youth Congress’ tweet mocking Modi. “Our PM has earned respect in India and also around the world.

The meme showed a photograph of Modi, US President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May in conversation. In the conversation PM Modi in a conversation with the two leaders – “Aap logon ne dekha vipaksh mere kaise kaise maimai banvata hai?” Trump corrects him, saying the word is pronounced as ‘meme’ – “usse maimai nahin, meme kehte hain”. May tells Modi to sell tea – “Tu chai bech”.
