It is very rare that a television debate has led to so much research. Well, a debate on India TV show 'Kurukshetra' aired on July 19, just a day before the no-confidence debate against Modi government in Lok Sabha led to an indepth research.
In the show, Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari reiterated Congress President Rahul Gandhi's remark that the 'the person who started Coca-Cola was a ‘shikanji’ (lemonade) seller'. The Congress president said a similar thing about McDonald’s, that its founder was running a dhaba (roadside restaurant). To prove his statement, Manish Tewari even tweeted an image of the original Coco Cola/ Lemonade push carts.
