Former Indian cricketer Virendra Sehwag, who is known for his hilarious tweets otherwise, got slammed by Twitterati on Thursday, as he spoke on concentrating on ‘real issues’, instead of climate change. He stated the fact that climate change was a problem in the US and not in India, so it shouldn’t concern the nation.
He said that pollution should not bother India as global warming exists in the US.
Global warning ho rahi hogi US mein.Traffic and congestions se India ke pollution par kya farak padta hai ! Concentrate on real issues !

Online cab aggregator, Ola, gave a befitting reply on the cricketer’s tweet, and explained what the ‘real problem’ is.
Actually, vehicular congestion is one of the prime reasons for the increase in CO2 emissions. So, it is a real problem.
