He also added that the name ‘Dragon fruit’ is associated with china and we have now changed it to ‘Kamalam’. However, netizens couldn’t handle this ‘small change’ and started trending #Kamalam and #Dragonfruit.
Have a look:
Priorities of a Chief Minister are set! He is doing a top notch job!
Ofcourse we are not satisfied renaming just the cities, we have to do something about the fruits and vegetables…
