Ask the Government, Kunal Kamra is just a street side joker.— Stranger 🇮🇳 (@amarDgreat) June 24, 2021
Our country has recently administered 85 Lakh vaccines in a day. Highest number of jabs by any country in the free world! 🇮🇳 https://t.co/tq0hlpa0gL
Why is @nytimes giving Kunal Kamra and his opinion any relevance? What has he done for India other then cry, complain and push his own narrative? Has he even tried to help anyone during these tough times? https://t.co/qdSEVkjnnE— Kush Sareen (@Ksareen30) June 23, 2021
