In a world dominated by memes on social media, the two senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders - Nirmala Sitharaman and Piyush Goyal - became a matter of laughter after their remarks went viral. Many social media enthusiasts came our searching for logic and accuracy in these remarks. Sitharaman is the Union Finance Minister while Piyush Goyal heads the Railway portfolio. 

Sitharaman remarks were all over the internet, apart from news reports, mostly in form of memes with #BoycottMillennials, after she blamed the downfall of the automobile industry on ‘millennials’ for using services of Ola and Uber. 

Well, given that the majority of the youth in the country are grappling with the unemployed situation and even the ones employed can’t necessarily afford a car, a few privileged "millennials" using Ola and Uber wouldn’t have affected the entire Auto Industry. There have to more to it that has led to the worst slowdown of the Automobile industry. Similarly, Goyal came into the light while speaking in defence of the crumbling economic condition in the country, after he said that “Math did not help Einstein discover gravity”.  Members of the internet turned made his statement viral with #EinsteinGoyal. Now, the students and scientists seem confused after Piyush Goyal’s blunderous statement. On social media, some are correcting the Union Minister asserting that it was Newton who discovered Gravity. Moreover, the mathematics denounced by Goyal helped Newton understand gravity. 

However, later Goyal tried to clarify his statement saying the comment he made had a certain context. "Unfortunately, some friends have sought to remove the context, pick up one line and create a very mischievous narrative," said the Union Minister. 

In another blunder, Goyal went on to say while rectifying his earlier remark, "Math did help Einstein discover gravity." However, mantriji got it wrong again.
