The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) landed itself in a hilarious predicament when on Thursday, in a bid to fill empty stadiums, it fraudulently gave tickets for the England-New Zealand while telling them they were for the Pakistan-India match.

Outside the Narendra Modi Stadium where England faced off with New Zealand in the first match of the ICC World Cup, the women told media that they had been given tickets by the BJP, adding that they had been promised food inside the stadium as well.

One woman told a journalist that they were at the stadium, “to watch the Pakistan -India match.” Upon being told that the match was between England and New Zealand, the woman said, “We were told it’s Pakistan Vs India, that’s why we were sent here.”
