After images of Secret Santa events were share across social media, netizens were quick to point out how Santa had changed over the years. The discussion quickly took a political turn after a few handle associated with Opposition parties attributed the cause of diminishing belly to Govt’s economic policies and the threat of looming recession.

While speaking to our reporter a Congress spokesperson said, “This is a disturbing trend and ruling Govt is responsible. Maybe Santa is jobless, maybe he doesn’t get to eat as much to maintain that belly. Modiji must resign.”

The aforementioned apprehension isn’t entirely unfounded. A independent report accessed by our reporter revealed that Santa waist has reduced by 50% since BJP took over.

There were also concerns if Secret Santa would be celebrated at all in organization in the coming years.

“There is an atmosphere of fear even among Santa Claus. After implementation of CAA and NRC, Santa won’t get entry into the country because he will not have any documents to show. I am asking the Govt, is this what you mean by being secular. This is not the India that we want to live in,” remarked a popular News Anchor, who is now mulling returning  his award as sign of protest.
