‘Subah Chai, Din Mein Pakoda, Raat Mein Chowkidari’: Youth Slams BJP’s Sambit Patra During TV Debate (Video)
Criticising Patra for not talking about real issues, he further asks, “Do we go to a toilet to cast our vote this time?
A video clipping, from a debate show on Hindi news channel TV9 Bharatvarsh, is going viral on social media. It shows a youth going head to head against Bharatiya Janata Party’s Puri Lok Sabha candidate Sambit Patra, questioning him on healthcare and education and asking him not to divert the conversation from real issues.
The young man, who was part of the audience, told Sambit Patra, “Sir.. 40-43 minutes have passed, you did not speak of education or healthcare not even once.” He then says, sarcastically, “you gave us jobs — sell tea in the morning, pakoda in the evening and be a watchman at night.”

Indirectly referring to the much-publicised Swachh Bharat mission, the youth asks, “You tell us one thing, do we go to a toilet to cast our vote this time? Because you don’t talk about education or healthcare at all.”
Patra then tries to divert the conversation by saying the young man was being ‘disrespectful’ by connecting elections with toilets.
In a condescending tone, he says, “See remember one thing, you can ask questions here, you are young, don’t ever say… We will go to the bathroom to cast our vote.”
When pressed on talking about the job loss and unemployment numbers in the country and not to deviate from the question, Patra continued, “Vote is your birthright… Give it to whoever you want, but please vote and go to vote.”
The youth again questioned Patra, “About education and healthcare you did not say anything. You spoke poetic words, talk about education and healthcare for once.”
Patra then embarks on a testimonial about Ayushman yojna, without going into whether it has been effective on the ground and reached the people.
The topic of education however was left untouched.
