When Sambit Patra met another Sambit Patra

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra is once again facing considerable social media roasting after a video of his lack of knowledge on the number of zeroes in one trillion went viral. Patra was taking part in a programme organised by ABP News channel ahead of the assembly polls in Jharkhand. He was pitted against a little-known Congress spokesperson Gaurav Ballabh. Little did he realise that Ballabh will expose his inadequacies as a spokesperson thereby causing embarrassment for Home Minister Amit Shah.

Patra’s woes began to compound after Ballabh threw a challenge at him asking him to state the number of zeroes in one trillion. This was in the context of the Centre’s BJP government’s promise to achieve a $ 5 trillion economy for India by 2024. As expected, Patra struggled and desperately sought to divert the topic to hide embarrassment. But Ballabh appeared determined to test Patra’s knowledge on numbers.
