Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali is NOT launching a Swadeshi SIM with BSNL, but Twitter is full of MEMES
Baba Ramdev's Patanjali's tie-up with BSNL
Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Swadeshi SIM launch is a FAKE news but desi netizens are busy cracking jokes on it.
There was much buzz on social media about a Swadeshi SIM launch by Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali. Reports even said that the consumer goods company was planning to enter the telecom sector and had announced a special partnership with BSNL with a new Rs 144 plan.
As the news grabbed eyeballs on Twitter, it was flooded with jokes and memes. However, it was later confirmed that the news was misconstrued as the so-called BSNL and Patanjali tie-up is only for employees of the company and linked organisations.
Patanjali has issued a statement saying it was incorrect to say that the company was planning to enter the telecom sector. The statement adds, “Patanjali has collaborated with BSNL for low rate calls, and other benefits, for its own workers across the country.”
However, people still came up with hilarious one-liners and rib-ticklers on the micro-blogging site.
