Many termed it as optical illusion as Jagan seemed to be smiling and crying at the same time. The Andhra CM’s pic joins the list of images like the pink and grey shoe that previously broke the internet.

The debate saw almost a mini-war breaking out between supporters of Jagan who thought he was smiling and those who saw him as crying.

Politicians too jumped in to share their thoughts. Arvind Kejriwal said that he could see both Jagan’s face as both sad and happy. “He is happy at being elected the CM of Andhra and sad because Modi is the PM of India.”

Mamta Bannerjee while taking a swipe at BJP said, “Homara halat bhi kuch oisa hi hai. Hosneka ki Roneka kuch somajh nahi aata hai. Modi sab MLA chori kar raha hai TMC ka. This is not democracy. This is highway robbery.” 

Reacting to the news, Jagan wrote on his twitter handle and said that he himself wasn’t sure about the image as he had mixed emotions. “I know a lot of people are perplexed with my look. Honestly even I cannot figure out if I am happy or sad. That is why I don’t have any mirrors at home because it confuses the hell out of me,” he tweeted.
