The speech vent viral and the anti-national debate and recent JNU controversy became the discussion everywhere. It got both positive as well as negative response across the country.

A few months back Pepsi had allegedly spoofed the Pune IIFT row and their "Pepsi thi pee gaya" act rather got much negative feedback. However this new Yatra ad has been getting mixed response from the netizens.
