It wasn't a good day for Billiards player and Arjuna Awardee, Pankaj Advani, who got trolled after posting a tweet congratulating Prime Minister Narendra Modi for being declared the best Prime Minister in the world.
A lot of people fell for the hoax after a WhatsApp message declaring that UNESCO had declared Modi as the best PM of the world, went viral.
'Nationalists' took no time in exchanging congratulatory messages on Twitter, beaming with pride on the international validation!

As per bhakts, UNESCO came into existence only for :1. Declaring Jan-Gan-Man as best national anthem2. Declaring Modiji as best PM 😂— Pratyush Mayank (@pratyushmayank) June 24, 2016
It was just the hoax that was in news, until, India's most successful cueist Pankaj Advani also fell for it, and naively tweeted this:
And the internet showed no mercy. A parody account of Chetan Bhagat also trolled Advani!
@PankajAdvani247 देखना कहीं ट्विटर वाले आपका ब्लू टिक वापस लेने की घोषणा न कर दे। 😂— कल्पु (@KaaalPanic) June 25, 2016
But the young player, who is a 15-time World Billiards and Snooker Champion, had a best comeback for everyone who called him out for his tweet.
I know I got my facts wrong but this apparently gets more attention than when I win a WORLD TITLE!! 🙄🙄 🙏🏻 https://t.co/vWeBwdeuaO— Pankaj Advani (@PankajAdvani247) June 25, 2016
