New Delhi: Wednesday morning witnessed immediate Twitter reactions to the Supreme Court’s decision Congress leader P. Chidambaram bail— and not all were celebratory.
Chidambaram’s son Karti Chidambaram, of course, rejoices on Twitter!
Phew. At last after 106 days 🙂

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor welcomes his colleague’s release but is still unhappy!
But justice delayed is justice denied. This should have been granted much earlier. Nothing is different from three months ago. https://t.co/YLSdhgG6lG

BJP’s Sambit Patra is equally disappointed but for very different reasons.
So finally Chidambaram too joins the long list of “OOBC(Out On Bail Club)” in the Congress ..He joins the coveted Club,some members of which are:

As for Rajya Sabha BJP MP Subramanian Swamy, he’s already plotting the former finance minister’s return to jail.
If Pucca Chor gets bail due to the blessings of the foreign Christian fanatics, one more case should be filed to send him back. I have that one more ready but I want PM to re- transfer Rajeshwar of ED to Delhi from Lucknow where Jaitely sent him and denying him his promotion

Pawan Khera of Congress invents a delightful family tree for people with the surname Shah.
If Shishir Bajaj’s Bajaj Hindusthan Sugar is the same as Rahul Bajaj’s Bajaj Group then Sher Shah, Nasiruddin Shah and Amit Shah have jointly written the ‘Shahnama’ https://t.co/LJU3XRaYio

Writer Aatish Taseer and his mother, journalist Tavleen Singh, get into a spat over a New Yorker piece on the rise of BJP and Narendra Modi’s India. No surprise that their divergent views became fodder for Twitter trolls!
What the West needs to understand is that an illiberal India cannot be your friend in any meaningful way. Your interests may temporarily align, but eventually they will collide—and what matters then, as we have discovered with Turkey, are not interests, but values. https://t.co/q9EgTyyvfP

The New Yorker piece is without context and therefore misleading. It sees Gujarat 2002 in isolation. Forget 1984 and the ‘secular’ pogrom that killed 3000 Sikhs in three days there have been much worse riots in Gujarat. https://t.co/W4y3i2S7xN
