He further took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his ‘Pakoda’ remark. ‘”From now on youths will not migrate to different cities to do engineering nor does they will fry ‘Pakodas’ due to lack of jobs. We will develop Bhopal like Pune or Bengaluru. Nobody visualised that Bhopal could become an IT hub. We have the vision we will make that happen”, he tweeted in Hindi. Earlier Prime Minister Narendra Modi during an interview to a TV Channel said that anyone selling ‘pakodos’ and earning 200 per day is also employed.
अब बच्चे इंजीनियरिंग कर न दूसरे शहर जाएंगे, न नौकरी के अभाव में 'पकोड़े' तलेंगे। पूना, बेंगलुरु सा विकास लाकर हम भोपाल को ग्लोबल सिटी बनाएंगे। हमारा प्रयास होगा, भोपाल में अच्छी पढ़ाई और उत्तम नौकरी। भोपाल क्यों आईटी हब नहीं बन सकता? किसी ने सोचा नहीं। हमने सोचा, हम बनाएंगे।
