AAP leader Raghav Chadha found himself locked in an unusual debate after being ‘divebombed’ by a crow outside the Parliament. As BJP leaders shared the photo with a multitude of jibes the lawmaker responded with a popular Hindi couplet.

“Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kaate (one who lies will be pecked by a crow). Till now, we had only heard about it but today we saw how a crow bit a liar,” the BJP tweeted sharing a set of photos from the incident.

“This reply by the government exposes the fake claims of peace and security. What is stopping them from giving answers on Manipur,” he said on Twitter while sharing his question.
