Chandu who lives in Saket, has had his breakfast, lunch and dinner sorted because of the current situation. He revealed his strategy to Faking News – “I collected laddoos from Saket metro and PVR Anupam ATMs in the morning. Then a Sardarji served free tea to me at Malviya Nagar’s ATM. In the afternoon I participated in a rally against demonetization organized by opposition, so they gave me lunch. Now I will go to Gurudwara to get free dinner in the Langar.”
