In 2012 when BJP candidate <a id='highlight' href='http://www.merinews.com/topics/person/narendra-modi'>Narendra Modi</a> was re elected as the Chief Minister of Gujarat, the entire country erupted into a debate over the significance of the win as well as Modi's future in national politics. Congress, the ruling party in the central government at that time suffered humiliating defeat in the hands of BJP. In this backdrop Congress MLA Sanjay Nirupam and BJP MP <a id='highlight' href='http://www.merinews.com/topics/person/smriti-irani'>Smriti Irani</a> gets into a verbal duel of words in a session called by one of the television news channel. Not able to match up with Smriti's verbal skills and statistical advantage of the vote results, Mr. Nirupam shpots back on national television "Aap toh TV pe thumke lagati thi, aaj chunavi vishleshak ban gayi" (you were shaking hips on TV till yesterday, today you are a political analyst). The comment drew flak from celebrities and TV stars,many of whom bashed Mr. Nirupam for showcasing the entertainment industry in poor light.
