As Indians around the country prepare for the second round of voting in the 2019 general election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi posted tweets responding to actors Kabir Bedi and Ranvir Shorey and cricketer Ravindra Jadeja.
The PM greeted by Indian cricket all rounder Mr Jadeja, who was, in turn, congratulated for being selected as part of the team traveling to England for the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. The cricketer too expressed his support for the ruling party.
In his tweet Jadeja wrote “I support BJP.@narendramodi #rivabajadeja jai hind 🇮🇳”

Kollywood director C.S Amudhan who director two parody movies in his career trolled Jadeja indirectly on seeing this conversation of him with the Prime Minister. Rishab Pant, one of the emerging cricketer of India is also the one who expected to be in the 15 member squad. Unfortunately senior player Dinesh Karthick selected in place of him.
Mentioning Pant’s name Amudhan trolled Jadeja as a player who got into the team by Modi’s influence.
His tweet read as “Ithu therinjirundha naanum….. ~ @RishabPant777”
