‘Stand-Up Comedian’ Who Campaigned Against Infra Development In India, Slammed For Enjoying It AbroadStand-Up Comedian Vir Das (@thevirdas/Twitter)

Stand-up Comedian Vir Das was slammed on Twitter after he heavily praised the Eurostar high-speed rail while travelling from Brussels to London.

It may be recalled that Das had recently opposed the Aarey metro car shed construction in Mumbai which is indispensable to the completion of Mumbai Metro 3 line.

This led many to question Das’ love for world class infra while travelling abroad, while at the same time campaigning for what may potentially deprive millions of Indians of the same.

Incidentally, Das is not new to social media controversies. In the past he was heavily panned on Twitter for first attacking the Narendra Modi led government without much substance and then dismissing netizens as “trolls” after they tried to educate him.
