Balurghat: Overjoyed tea seller Bisu Sarkar from Balurghat distributed tea on Friday, free-of-cost, as his idol Narendra Modi sweeped the Lok Sabha elections 2019.
Sarkar’s crooked and small tea shop is located at Raghunathpur area. He invited several people to his shop and treated them with free ‘chai’ because as per him Narendra Modi was also a chaiwala or a tea-seller just like him.
In the Lok Sabha elections, Modi-led NDA government won 353 seats. Balurghat BJP candidate Dr. Sukanta Majumder also won. Soon after Sarkar got the news from TV and word-of-mouth, he immediately took the decision of offering tea to all free of cost. Hence, from Friday morning itself, he did what he wanted to do.
Sarkar said that he has been running his daily family expenses by this small tea-stall. He has his wife and child. He also sells biscuits along with tea. Though he earns too less, but he feels proud. He is proud because PM Narendra Modi was also a tea-seller just like him once.
