In a statement given to the media, Habib said, "I am happy to join the BJP as I have seen the changes brought in the country by Prime Minister Modi in the last five years. I think nobody should be ashamed of their background. When the Prime Minister is proud to state that he was a 'chaiwala' then why should I be ashamed of calling myself a 'nai' (barber)?"
Right after this news came out, it sparked off hilarious memes on the internet. Netizens put their photoshop skills to good use and BJP leaders are seen sporting funky hairdos. Check these out!
