NEW DELHI :
VACCINE is given in the ‘baahu’ (arm) and those who take it become ‘Baahubali’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday and asserted that over 40 crore people have become ‘Baahubali’ (strong) in the fight against coronavirus. Addressing reporters ahead of the start of the session, Modi also said the inoculation programme in the country was moving forward at a fast pace.
The Prime Minister’s remarks triggered reactions from netizens, who referred to the South Indian hit movie ‘Baahubali’ which had a very strong protagonist. Tagging Modi’s remarks, a Twitter user said, “Makes sense - there are 2 parts to Baahubali - dose 1 and dose 2”. “Corona virus is like katappa and will attack again from behind. We can’t be careless as in real life, there would be no sequel,” tweeted another user, referring to another character in the two-part epic movie.
