Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been at the receiving end of online trolling after he released a video on YouTube claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would kill him out of frustration.
It is not news that Twitter loves Kejriwal for the meme fodder he seems to consistently churn out. And no one loves the Delhi CM more than his parody account, @TrollKejri.
The person running the account seems to have had a few busy days on Twitter, churning out one jibe after another aimed at PM Modi.

The parody account of the Delhi CM sent social media users into a tizzy when it started tweeting to corporates like Ola, Flipkart, Airtel, Spicejet and many more, requesting protection against PM Modi.
While many tweets were received with laughter and retweets, some social media users pointed out that the jokes were in bad taste. Some users also resorted to tweeting expletives to @TrollKejri.
But cab aggregator Ola taught Twitterati how to best to deal with trolls by taking @TrollKejri on in what is one of the smoothest takedowns Twitter India has seen in recent times.
"@Olacabs Modi ji mujhe maarne ke lie tumse gaadi maangne aayenge. Dena mat," @Trollkejri tweeted. Here's how the conversation panned out:
Hello @Olacabs I need help— Arvind Kejriwal (@TrollKejri) July 28, 2016
@TrollKejri Yes, How can we help?— Ola (@Olacabs) July 28, 2016

Take a bow, Ola. Take a bow.
