Earlier today, Delhi police reached the residence of Boxing world champion MC Mary Kom with a birthday cake for her son.

Quite obviously this was seen as nothing more than just PR service at a time when countless poor migrant workers are walking thousands of kilometres back home.
Twitter being Twitter, made Delhi Police very aware of how they felt about this futile exercise.

Please surprise poor migrant by giving them some sort of facility of atleast providing food and drinking water facility at 500m interval so that no poor will die.— Narshima (@Narshim41351846) May 14, 2020

Delhi police ka dimag toh sahi hai na yaha desh ki lagi padi hai aur yeh birthday celebration karne mein apni energy waste kar rahe hai— ANUJ MAHESHWARI (@Anuj50404056) May 15, 2020
Is this police of national capital of India or they are some drama team? This is an exploitation of power and misuse of resources at this crucial time.— Talha khan (@Tkhann20) May 15, 2020
Police me ho ya Zomato , swiggy me— Naveen Kumar (@naveenkmr396) May 15, 2020
Honestly, I've got nothing more to add here! Hopefully, Delhi police looks around and sees who actually needs them at this hour.
