BJP hails Babri verdict, Priyanka asks Adityanath to resign, Mahua calls out Modi’s ‘new India’

The most politically correct and incorrect tweets of the day from across the political spectrum.

New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh was the epicentre of a Twitter storm after the 20-year-old gang rape victim from Hathras was cremated by the police in the dead of the night Wednesday and without her family present.

Meanwhile, a trial court in Lucknow finally gave a verdict in the 28-year-old Babri Masjid demolition case, acquitting all accused including veteran BJP leaders L.K. Advani and Murali Manohar Joshi.

As was to be expected, there was much gusto among BJP leaders.

Here are a few ‘celebratory’ tweets from Ram Madhav, B.L. Santhosh and P. Muralidhar Rao. Please note, Santosh and Madhav have not said anything about the victim of the Hathras gang rape.



On the other end, Congress’ Srivatsa Y.B. spares no sarcasm on the ‘real’ cause of the Babri Masjid demolition:

CPI(M)’s Sitaram Yechury and poet Meena Kandasamy wonder if the mosque demolished itself.

AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi takes to poetry to express his anguish at the verdict.

Activist Kiruba Munuswamy says the Hathras gang rape and the Babri Masjid demolition verdict tell us about India. Read to find out what.

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi is scathing about the UP government, comparing it to the accused in the Hathras case.

Congress spokesperson Shama Mohamed calls for UP CM Yogi Adityanath’s resignation and the party’s Uttar Pradesh President Ajay Kumar Lallu backs her up.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party have some strong words for the Yogi Adityanath government.

Actor Arjun Rampal asks a hard-hitting question of us all.

TMC’s Mahua Moitra rages against the UP police’s attitude and actions, blaming it on ‘Modi’s New India’.

And in the midst of all this criticism, UP CM Yogi Adityanath takes an oath.

Singer T.M. Krishna’s outrage finds a different kind of expression.

And after a rather ‘interesting’ first presidential debate, full of insults and name-calling, this is what US President Donald Trump and Democrat candidate Joe Biden had to say:

  1. Muslims complain when one mosque is demolished. But they never raise their voices when Hindu temples are demolished in pakistan and Bangladesh. When they are selective in their protests, is it any wonder nobody cares?
