Amit Mishra Slammed IAS Officer For His ‘Distasteful’ Joke On India’s Thomas Cup Win

Amit Mishra Slammed IAS Officer For His ‘Distasteful’ Joke On India’s Thomas Cup Win: On Sunday, May 15, India scripted history in Bangkok as the Indian men’s badminton team by winning the Thomas Cup for the first time in history. In fact, this was India’s first-ever medal in the 73-year-old history of this tournament.

The victory of the Indian men’s badminton team is of such an unprecedented scale that it is being compared to the 1983 World Cup triumph in cricket. Needless to say, the likes of Lakshya Sen, Kidambi Srikanth, and HS Prannoy have led India to eternal glory and have made the whole country proud of them.

While the historical win has led to celebration all across the nation, with people from several corners taking to social media to celebrate the win, on the other hand, an attempted joke by an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) Officer on Twitter has gone viral on the internet for all the wrong reasons.
