Shefali Vaidya, who is associated with BJP, has a habit of making false claims on social networking sites. After the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, announced repulsion of three farm laws, she praised the leader while targeting Virat Kohli. However, what she wrote about the former T20 skipper was wrong.
“What strength of character must it take to say this? He could have chosen to issue a press release, and he could have chosen to let the agriculture minister announce this like imVkohli sent Bumrah to face the press after the Pak debacle. But he did NOT,” she wrote.
Fans schooled her for targeting the legendary player and quoting wrong facts.
A. Virat Kohli himself attended the PC after Pakistan game.
B. Had he not attended it also, it wouldn't had mean that he sent someone else to throw them under the bus and avoid criticism. He's pretty much a player's captain.
C. There wasn't even any need to bring Virat here.

It takes strength of character to actually face the press, which your supreme leader hasn’t done even once in the last 7 years.
Also, Virat did face the press after the Pak match, he didn’t send Bumrah. Is lying compulsory for you lot?

Firstly Modi ji isn't facing press here. And after the loss to Pakistan Virat went to the conference "to face the press" .
Comparison of cricket and politics🤦♂️.
Compare toh kiya woh bhi galat info se. Limelight me aur kitna aaoge aap?

Virat has been rested from the ongoing T20I series between India and New Zealand. The veteran will return after the first Test against the Kane Williamson-led side. He is expected to captain India in the second Test.
