New Delhi: Four weeks on, and after Saturday’s ‘coup de Pawar’, nobody, least of all the politicians, knows what’s happening or will happen in Maharashtra. That hasn’t stopped them from flooding Twitter with predictions, prognosis, wit and wisdom. Take a look:
NCP’s Nawab Malik chooses his words wisely. But who cares about vikas, Malik sahib?

Shiv Sena’s Priyanka Chaturvedi uses irony to make a number of telling points on what Shiv Sena has and the BJP doesn’t.

Is Ajit Pawar in NCP? Is NCP with BJP? Or is it with Shiv Sena and Congress? And where is Sharad Pawar? Figure it out if you can…
I am in the NCP and shall always be in the NCP and @PawarSpeaks Saheb is our leader.
Our BJP-NCP alliance shall provide a stable Government in Maharashtra for the next five years which will work sincerely for the welfare of the State and its people.

There is no question of forming an alliance with @BJP4Maharashtra.
NCP has unanimously decided to ally with @ShivSena & @INCMaharashtra to form the government. Shri Ajit Pawar’s statement is false and misleading in order to create confusion and false perception among the people.

Even PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti has an opinion on the Maharashtra drama!
Congress, NCP & SS fuming about a 24 hour delay / intentional reprieve given by SC to BJP. Now imagine sense of helplessness & anger Kashmiris feel about SC dithering & dragging its feet on brutal restrictions in J&K since 112 days. First they came for us now it’s your turn

With so much confusion and double speak in Maharashtra, Amazon may be forgiven this (now deleted) automatic response on delayed deliveries. Not everything is about your service, Amazon bot!
At least the Maharashtra crisis has taught Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut a history lesson!

If ‘one two ka four’ and ‘four two ka one’ was a real life event…

Congress’s Salman Nizami paints a very glum picture of Kashmir with his poetry. The Chinars are also crying, sir.
My Kashmir is ALONE
Without net and phone
Sad smiles & flowing tears
Painful silence evry where
Horrific nights & terrible days
No schools & No games
Fade flowers & sad streams
Whre is the mainstream?
We are suffering, we are crying.
Our future is dying, Humanity is also shying!
