New Delhi: Twitter was flooded with reactions to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s statements on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) while many others commented on the detention of J&K DSP Davinder Singh, caught with Hizbul militants in Kashmir Saturday. Interestingly, the normally hyperactive BJP IT cell and the party’s leaders were fairly tight-lipped on both subjects.

BuzzFeed News’ Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith made headlines by putting out a tweet quoting Nadella on the CAA Monday night. Soon after, Microsoft issued a more diplomatic version of his ‘sad’ remarks. Later, Smith tweeted Nadella’s complete response to the question he’s asked.

Read for yourselves.

Nadella’s statement received praise from US Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, a bugbear for the Indian government with her constant criticism of India’s actions in Kashmir.

Congress MP Abhishek Manu Singhvi is also happy with Nadella’s comments – and here’s why.

Is actor Payal Rohatagi the only person to be confused by the meaning of Nadella’s statements?

With the detention of DSP Davinder Singh, the shoe is on the other foot: now the Opposition questions the government on security. Congress MP and leader in the Lok Sabha, Adhir Chowdhury raises a storm with his ‘Davinder Khan’ reference while hinting at dark conspiracies in the Pulwama incident that left 40 CRPF personnel dead.

And Rashtriya Lok Dal’s Jayant Chaudhary has some questions for National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval on J&K’s security set up.

Author Kapil Komireddi shares his doubts on Afzal Guru’s death sentence in the light of Singh’s arrest. He is immediately challenged by an army officer.

Did BJP’s Kirit Somaiya just set the Guinness World Record by saying “Maine aapko jawaab de diya hai ” 27 times in a 4 minute interview?

While many in Bollywood have expressed their views on CAA and the student protests across the country, sportspersons have been conspicuous by their silence. That’s now been broken by Olympic medal-winning boxer Vijendra Singh,.

And what have we here? A (w)arm welcome by Pakistani minister Mushtaq Minhas to Army Chief General Naravane after the latter said the Indian army would reclaim PoK if asked to.

So this is how US President Donald Trump spends his day – tweeting. Note the utter disregard for typos and fact-checks.

US presidential candidate Andrew Yang wants a birthday gift — guess what it is.
