He also took a jibe at Shah that even he has not pressed any button, yet “we feel the current of government's decisions at home!”

Shah, during the Delhi Assembly elections, had said that people should press the button so hard while voting that the current should be felt at Shaheen Bagh, where women were protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act. However, the BJP could only manage to get eight of the 70 Assembly seats in Delhi.
