A video of Union Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal has gone viral in which he claims that a papad brand has the capacity to develop anti-bodies against coronavirus in the body.
The video evoked sarcastic remarks on social media. “A manufacturer has brought out a brand with the name of Bhabhi Ji papad through which the means needed to develop anti-bodies to fight coronavirus will go in the body through food and will be helpful in the fight against coronavirus,” Meghwal said, endorsing the brand.

The minister has been seeking to promote ‘vocal for local’ campaign of the government in his tweets.
“The papads, bhujia, and rasgullas of Bikaner are popular. In support of VocalForLocal, I urge you to support it and local products in your area so that the campaign can be taken forward,” he had said in a tweet.
बीकानेर के पापड़, भुजिया और रसगुल्ले सुप्रसिद्ध है। मैं #VocalForLocal की मुहिम का समर्थन करते हुए से आप सभी को अपने क्षेत्र के स्थानीय उत्पादों के बारे में #Vocal बनने की शृंखलाबद्ध रूप से अपील करता हूँ ताकि #VocalForLocaL मुहिम को और आगे बढ़ाया जा सके।
