Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot fell victim to a plethora of trolls online after goofing up politician Sachin Pilot’s name with veteran cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
Unless you’re in the know, Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan Sachin Pilot has been on the headlines of late after rumours swirled across the internet claiming he’s leaving Congress and joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Very soon, he was removed from his Deputy position by the Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot.
Following his termination, Pilot debunked rumours telling NDTV he’s “not joining the BJP” and the alleges were “an attempt to malign me in the eyes of the Gandhis.”
Pilot also says he stands his ground wanting to serve the people of Rajasthan.

Meanwhile, Gehlot was the topic of a troll-fest after mixing up his rival’s name with cricketing icon Sachin Tendulkar, in the midst of a live debate on news channel India Today.
A flurry of jokes stormed the internet with some joking they wouldn’t be surprised if Gehlot goofs up Rahul Gandhi’s name with Rahul Dravid, calling him “a great entertainer” and inviting him to “try tongue twisters.”
As if Gehlot’s goof-up isn’t enough to share a laugh, have a look at US President Donald Trump’s infamous attempt to pronounce Sachin Tendulkar’s name:
