Indian politicians are walking talking goldmines when it comes to trolling. They emulate humour every time they open their mouth to make a statement sending troll makers to work. Our politicians may or may not be successful in generating employment in the country but they sure have encouraged and sustained job creation for the meme industry. The latest contributor to this sector is Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chauhan.
While the esteemed leader of state is on a six day tour of USA with an aim to promote investment in Madhya Pradesh, he jived up the troll community when he said, “When I got down at Washington Airport & travelled on roads, I felt roads in MP are better than US.”

The sarcasm of his words hit home harder than you would expect Americans to take offence from his words. Twitterati set to work instantly serving reality to the three term old chief minister with #MProads.

While some swapped potholed road images of Madhya Pradesh with those of sparkly Americans roads to drizzle sarcasm over reality, others branded complex Trans highways of America as those seen in Indore or Bhopal.

Singh’s epic image of being shouldered by two policemen while visiting flood-hit areas has also not been spared the wrath of Photoshop as he was cropped along with his two security men to what may be a probable sight if he visits the Niagara falls.

While Singh’s words may set us rolling on our backs, it eventually boils down to the show of blind patriotism our leaders put up when on foreign soil even if reality sings a different tune back home.
