Twitter is now trolling Nishikant Dubey for the second time in as many days.
For the uninitiated, the BJP MP had recently said that the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has no relevance and it should not be treated as 'Bible, Ramayan and Mahabharat'. He had been participating in a discussion in the Lok Sabha on the Taxation Law Amendment Bill and a statutory resolution disapproving the ordinance on the same legislation.
Following his comments, the minister was trolled relentlessly on social media.
Now, on Tuesday, speaking in the Lok Sabha, he requested speaker, Om Birla to ban social media, or at least bring in regulations.
He began addressing the Speaker with the words, "I need your protection".
"The media...social media especially has misconstrued my words," he said while calling for a ban.
This of course has resulted in a second round of comments from social media users.
Take a look:
And what about the trolling and harassment the rest of us, especially women journalists, face? Ek din ke baad aap dar gaye https://t.co/mUbzNR3F0p— Nidhi Razdan (@Nidhi) December 3, 2019

Mama, I won't go to social media now, they tease me.— कटियार साहब (@EkThaEngg) December 3, 2019
Why can't you ask them to behave ? https://t.co/4bMvDiOAwV
Unfortunate if he has been harassed. He has made such sensible comments in the past like how black money can’t be brought back from Switzerland in our lifetime. Only Harishchandra in politics. Social media users, please don’t harass him but encourage him to keep speaking! https://t.co/HXNd2xjYe7— Rohini Singh (@rohini_sgh) December 3, 2019
You are asking for ban on social media websites. Why on the earth you are using one?— Kartikey jani (@kartikey_jani) December 3, 2019
