An absolutely weird conversation took place between taxi aggregator Ola and Rahul Roushan, founder of Faking News, on Twitter this Monday.
Roushan, while riding an Ola cab, tweeted this:
I think my Ola driver farted, but he blames "kachare ka baas". This is why Swachh Bharat is important. No place for such excuses.— Rahul Roushan (@rahulroushan) June 27, 2016
Now, given that he has a penchant for making quirky tweets and is the founder of a portal which fictionalizes news and turns it into comedy, one would think that this comment was made in jest and Ola wouldn't bother replying... But it did!
@rahulroushan Not acceptable. We'll ensure he's given a regular supply of imodium to address the flatulence problem.

Okay... We don't know if that was serious or if Ola decided to play along but apparently, they made an error in their prescription for farts.
Someone pointed it out
Roushan then took it to another level and wanted a refund of the cab ride as it includes "Swachh Bharat cess".
Ola adds that to the bill. I'll ask for a refund and company paying that from driver's share. He created kachra. https://t.co/G3cAhtZz7G— Rahul Roushan (@rahulroushan) June 27, 2016
After going through this Twitter exchange, if you feel something like this, we don't blame you.
