Troll-cum-journalist Swati Chaturvedi mocks PM Modi, becomes a joke herself

Guess this is what happens when you spend a lot of time in fancy cafes in the most expensive retail location in India, Khan Market, instead of with mortal humans.

Abusive troll masquerading as a journalist Swati Chaturvedi in an attempt to come across as witty while mocking PM Modi shared a video clip of Prime Minister Modi. In the clip, which is edited, Modi is speaking in Dwarka, Gujarat, about the development of ports.

In his speech in Hindi, PM Modi is heard saying, “Jab se Bharat sarkar mein humein kaam karne ka avasar mila, humne Gujarat ke bandaro ke vikas par bhi itna hi dhyan diya hai.. aur jiske karan hum bandaron ka vikas karna chahte hai lekin hum bandar aadhaarit vikas bhi karna chahte hai.. hum woh infrastructure banana chahte hai ki jo bandaro ko road se jode, rail se jode, hawai patti se jode”

In the undated clip, it is clear that PM Modi is speaking about the development of ports, which is called ‘bandar’ in Hindi and Gujarati. Gujarat has the longest coastline and Dwarka is believed to be an ancient port. Chaturvedi thought she’s being witty by suggesting how Modi meant the development of ‘monkeys’ since Hindi word for monkey is bandar.

Now, a dig on the PM and Gujaratis would still have been fine, because we Gujaratis can take a joke or two on us, really, but what is disturbing in Chaturvedi’s brazenness regarding the whole thing. She was pointed out by multiple people that PM Modi means ports and not monkeys as Chaturvedi is implying and making it out to be a faux pas by Modi.

Swati Chaturvedi is like Salman Khan in Wanted. Once she has committed herself to something, ‘phir woh apne aap ki bhi nahin sunti’. She continued to justify her comment despite being proven wrong.

She even asked people to stop ‘justifying’ Modi’s ‘faux pas’.

Has Swati never heard of Porbandar, the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi? “Bandra” area of Mumbai, which derives its name from Bandar, meaning port? Or since she loves to flaunt her ‘secular’ credentials, does “Masjid Bandar” area in Mumbai refer to a mosque dedicated to monkeys?

This just goes to show that when Swati Chaturvedi is not busy cooking up fake stories and inventing ‘sources’ to pass off her figment of imagination as journalism, she is busy inventing a ‘faux pas’ when clearly there is none. Guess this is what happens when you spend a lot of time in fancy cafes in the most expensive retail location in India, Khan Market, instead of with mortal humans.
