On Monday, Microsoft's Indian-origin CEO Satya Nadella voiced concern over the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), saying what is happening is "sad".
"I think what is happening is sad... It's just bad.... I would love to see a Bangladeshi immigrant who comes to India and creates the next unicorn in India or becomes the next CEO of Infosys," Nadella said.
BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi mocked Nadella and said that he should be educated. Calling it a "perfect example" of "How literate need to be educated", Lekhi tweeted: "Precise reason for CAA to grant opportunities to persecuted minorities from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan. "How about granting these opportunities to Syrian Muslims instead of Yezidis in USA?"

Twitter brutally trolled the BJP spokesperson for her tweet. Netizens also reminded her that she wasn't able to write 'Swachh' in Hindi.
"Only two people in #BJP are more educated than #SatyaNadella - Narendra Modi & Smriti Irani. All they have to do is put their educational degree in public domain," a user wrote.
Another user wrote, "Pity he didn't get an education in WhatsApp University, no?"
Here is how Twitter reacted:
