New Delhi, Nov 13: As the national capital Delhi continues to reel under hazardous weather condition, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Monday using an old Bollywood song has found a sarcastic way to question the authorities.
“Sine mein jalan, aankho mein tufaan sa kyon hai… is shahar mein har saksh pareshan sa kyo hai? Kya batenge saheb, sab jaankar anjan kyo hain,” (Why is there burning sensation in lungs and tempest in the eyes…. why is everybody troubled in this city? What to say, sir, why are you pretending to be unaware even after knowing everything?), he tweeted along with news report regarding air pollution.
सीने में जलन, आँखों में तूफ़ान सा क्यों है
इस शहर में हर शख़्स परेशान सा क्यों है?
क्या बताएँगे साहेब, सब जानकर अंजान क्यों हैं? https://t.co/XZLqsWD0CO
