Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s latest announcement of scrapping notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 is the talk of the town. While there are many celebrating the bold step believing it’s a move against corruption and black money, there are thousands who are dealing with the difficult consequences of the same. The daily wage workers are probably the worst affected as they get money on a daily basis and the employers didn’t have enough money to pay yesterday.

However, millions lauded Modi for the same and took to Twitter to tell him how proud they are of the Prime Minister. Coach Anil Kumble was one of them who praised Modi in a typical ‘cricket’ language. “Massive googly bowled by our Hon. PM @narendramodi today. Well done Sir! Proud of you!!” he tweeted. And guess what, not only did his tweet go viral, it also received a response from the PM himself and a rather ‘cute’ one.

“This coming from one of India’s most admired cricketers, whose bowling caught many batsmen by surprise. :)” tweeted Modi in response.

Here’s how people reacted to it.

        AM SAD TO FIND YOUR COVERAGE ON THIS ENTIRE HISTORIC DECISION TO OOT OUT COURUPTION,WITH ASHADE OF REDICULE. YOUR CHOICE TO PICK AND CHOOSE A FEW REACTIONS FROM TONNS OF THEM ON NET ALSO SHOWS CLEAR BIAS. NDTV DESERVES A MAKE OVER AND CHANGE OF APPROACH. YOU ARE PREJUDICED AND ARE HATEFUL OF MODI JI,COULD BE READ ON FACE OF ANY COVERAGE ON RELEVANT ISSUES . AND YOU HAVE RIGHT TO BE SO. BUT WHILE DOING SO YOU TEND TO BELITTLE THE DECISIONS LIKE ONE UNDER SCOPE AND INCIDENTLLY BELITTLE INDIA. HOW LONG YOU THINK NATION COULD TOLERATE THIS.?
