After making a caricature of himself at the Rio Olympics, getting confused between athletes Srabani Nanda and Dutee Chand in his tweets and also misspelling gymnast Dipa Karmakar’s name, Union Sports Minister and BJP leader Vijay Goel has once again invited Twitter ire after India won the Kabaddi World Cup.
The reason for getting trolled was a picture that went viral in which the minister is seen posing for shutterbugs with the team holding the trophy.
People blamed him ‘for stealing their thunder’ and for ‘cheap publicity’.
Here are some of the tweets:
