When Prime Minister Narendra Modi compared Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal with Nobel laureate Nelson Mandela, the nation had a good laugh. Maybe that's why the Indian team got distracted during the match against South Africa on Sunday October 11.
In almost no time #YoBadalSoMandela became a trend on Twitter. Political opponents of Modi, comedians, public figures and common citizens started trolling the Prime Minister on Twitter. And some of them are bound to have you laughing like mad...

Anyone who compares Nelson Mandela to Badal knows nothing about Mr. Mandela or about Badal #YoBadalSoMandela— Raghu Ram (@tweetfromRaghu) October 11, 2015
If Badal is Mandela, That makes Kapil Sharma India's John Oliver I guess. #YoBadalSoMandela— Rituparna Chatterjee (@MasalaBai) October 11, 2015
Modi Ji just proved why he is our own Donald Trump. #YoBadalSoMandela— Sanjay Jha (@JhaSanjay) October 11, 2015
#YoBadalSoMandela "Who says our PM has no sense of humour. Let's hope, like Mandela, Bharat Ratna/Nobel Prize next for Badal"— Capt.Amarinder Singh (@capt_amarinder) October 11, 2015
Really worried. What if South Africa snaps diplomatic ties with us? #YoBadalSoMandela— Pawan Khera (@Pawankhera) October 11, 2015
