PM Modi comes up with witty reply to Shastri's twitter message

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Ravi Shastri today congratulated Modi for BJP's landslide win in the UP elections in his inimitable style and got an equally witty response from the Prime Minister.

Shastri, whose official twitter handle is @RaviShastriOfc, congratulated the Prime Minister using his favourite cliche 'Tracer Bullet'.



"Congratulations @BJP4India on the landslide win in UP. The pair of PM @narendramodi & @AmitShah went past 300-mark like a #TracerBullet," Shastri wrote on his twitter page tagging official twitter handles of PM Modi and president

Modi's response was in typical Shastri style.

"Thank you. UP polls did not quite go down to the wire. But, at the end of the day democracy is indeed the real winner! :)"

The analogy drawn by the Prime Minister was from Shastri's oft-repeated statement "Cricket is the real winner".

Modi's response saw over 3000 retweets and more than 6000 likes by late evening.

Shastri's 'Tracer Bullet' has been so popular that BCCI had started a contest with all current India players trying to imitate their former Team Director taking the 'Tracer Bullet Challenge'.
