The same was also claimed by Indian Express journalist Anya Shankar on Facebook.
At Munirka, a 20 something guy has locked his father inside the house because he was going to vote for BJP. Father from the window : “MC, BC, aa tu Ghar wapas. Ek paisa nahi milega saale.” Guy: “Kaunsa Ambani ke ghar paida kiya hai mujhe”. ???? He says he’s inspired by his friend who did the same in Palam. Some days I love my job.
The same claim was shared by Deputy Editor, Al Jazeera, Nadim Asrar on Twitter citing Shankar.
