Slamming the arrest of comedian Kiku Sharda, Congress on Thursday said such actions make India look like a "tin pot republic" and the Haryana Police should be "ashamed" of carrying out the arrest.

"As nation & as individuals v shd be proud to laugh at ourselves. Comedians like Palak shd be awarded not arrested.

He makes us laugh so much" 

The Haryana Police should be "ashamed" of carrying out the arrest.
