Everyone knows there is absolutely no love lost between the red and the saffron parties.

Most Leftists end up saying ‘Modi’ multiple times a day on TV debates.

As viewers sat down to listen to an hour of heated discussion on a live debate called ‘Counterpoint’ on regional Manorama News channel on what bigwigs in Kerala thought about Argentina’s loss and Messi’s sudden retirement, Narendra Modi would have been the last thing on their minds.

But the same was not the case for CPI(M) Member of Parliament MB Rajesh.

Rajesh’s slip of the tongue brought Modi, of all the people, into the discussion.

There are reasons for his retirement. Modi (Read- Messi) even had issues with the Argentinean football federation.

It took Rajesh another ten seconds or so to realise his error, following which he burst out into hearty laughter. Yeah, we too agree… that was one sporty goof-up, for sure.
