If you are a social media buff, chances are that you must have come across the viral ‘Jal Lijiye’ meme based on dialogue from Amrita Rao, Shahid Kapoor starrer 2006 film Vivah. Netizens have been sharing their funny twist to Amrita’s now-viral dialogue. Joining the social media bandwagon, Assam Police used the meme to drop a ‘hilarious’ but strict warning to drug peddlers in the state. Assam Police’s take on this meme features Amrita holding a pair of handcuffs, along with a tagline that read, “Jail chaliye, thak gaye honge drugs peddling karte karte. (Let’s go to jail. You must be tried after peddling drugs.)
This hilarious meme from Assam Police was in reference to its latest actions to curb the menace of drugs in the state.

Not just Assam Police, police departments of other states have been using wit and humour as means to deliver important messages through social media. This latest trend to use social media to connect to the netizen has gained traction in recent times.
One of the leaders of this trend, Mumbai Police is often seen dropping viral memes and witty posts to get their message across the gen-next on social media.
