On Saturday, after the Bikaner MP tested positive, Twitter brutally trolled him and reminded him of his "anti-bodies developing" papad.

"Biggest product marketing fail of all time: Bhabhi ji Papad. Jokes apart hope he recovers soon," a Twitter user wrote.

"Something wrong with the name #bhabhijipapad. Should've named it 'Patni ka Papad'. Might've worked," said another Twitter user.
