Union Home Minister Amit Shah said in an interview broadcast on Parliament TV on Sunday that Narendra Modi is not a dictator, but a democratic leader like him has never happened in India. Amit Shah said that Modi takes every important decision after consulting everyone. The report of his interview was also published by the English newspaper Hindustan Times. Sharing this news, the legendary tennis player Martina Navratilova has mocked PM Modi and wrote, “and for my next joke…”
Let us tell you that Martina Navratilova has been the greatest tennis player of her time. She has won 18 Grand Slams singles title, 31 major women’s doubles titles, and 10 major mixed doubles titles in her career. She has also been an advocate of gay rights and has been a supporter of democratic values.
Martina Navratilova has, in a past tweet, accused PM Modi (and former US President Donald Trump) of “trying to stifle the truth as much as possible, if that truth doesn’t suit their political purpose”. She first tweeted about Modi following the enaction of the National Registry of Citizens in Assam in 2019, when she shared an article about the policy turning four million people accused of being “infiltrators” stateless, saying Modi and Trump shared the same school of thought.
She replaced the cover photo on her Twitter handle with a picture of US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. After this tweet by Martina Navratilova, the sequence of jokes on Twitter has started. Journalist Swati Chaturvedi has quipped while drawing the attention of External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, activate Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli etc., it cannot be tolerated.
