PM Modi comes up with witty reply to Shastri’s twitter message

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s response was in typical Shastri style. “Thank you. UP polls did not quite go down to the wire. But, at the end of the day democracy is indeed the real winner! :)”

Ravi Shastri today congratulated Narendra Modi for BJP’s landslide win in the UP elections in his inimitable style and got an equally witty response from the Prime Minister.

Shastri, congratulated the Prime Minister using his favourite cliche ‘Tracer Bullet’. The pair of PM @narendramodi & @AmitShah went past 300-mark like a #TracerBullet,” Shastri wrote on his twitter page tagging official twitter handles of PM Modi and BJP president Amit Shah.

 

Modi’s response was in typical Shastri style. “Thank you. UP polls did not quite go down to the wire. But, at the end of the day democracy is indeed the real winner! :)”

 

The analogy drawn by the Prime Minister was from Shastri’s often repeated statement “Cricket is the real winner”. Modi’s response saw over 3000 re-tweets and more than 6000 likes by late evening.

Shastri’s ‘Tracer Bullet’ has been so popular that BCCI had started a contest with all current India players trying to imitate their former Team Director taking the ‘Tracer Bullet Challenge’.
