New Delhi: Twitter found itself in a terrible mood after the RBI announced a moratorium on Yes Bank and this saw outraged responses from the government’s biggest critics as well as ordinary individuals.
Rahul Gandhi, Congress, was first in line to crack the ‘Yes Bank’ becomes ‘No bank’ joke.
No Yes Bank.
Modi and his ideas have destroyed India’s economy.

Former finance minister and Congress leader P. Chidambram wants to know, who’s next?
BJP has been in power for six years. Their ability to govern and regulate financial institutions stands exposed
First, it was PMC Bank. Now it is YES Bank. Is the government concerned at all? Can it shirk its responsibility?
Is there a third bank in the line?

To which BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya blames P Chidambaram for the failing economy and the bank crisis. So tu-tu main-main continues…

Politics aside, senior advocate Prashant Bhushan looked grim reality in the face—and it’s not a pretty sight.
Another Bank collapsed due to regulatory failure by Govt & RBI while promoters were siphoning out the money. Same thing happened with ILFS, DHFL & is happening with India Bulls https://t.co/W6xWj2qlUR

Former BJP leader Yashwant Sinha, now a stern Modi critic, takes an ironic long view of the Yes Bank crisis.
Quite right. All the present ills the country is suffering from, including the banking crisis, are the creation of the Congress party. Modiji must be given a time of at least 50 years to clear the mess.

Poet and writer Kedar Mishra asks a very sharp question of the Indian public.
I am unable to understand my country. One by one bank are going to gutter. Today #YesBank goes #PMCBankCrisis way. Still we have a very popular government. Are we so idiot a nation or we have lost our mind?

Here’s some advice from a Yes Bank user but follow at your own risk.
If you've money in Yes Bank(like me), don't panic. Follow these steps :
– Buy LIC policies, pay premium
– Open account with SBI Bank, pay bank charges
– Let them pump money in Yes Bank
– Withdraw from Yes Bank
– Close SBI Account
– Die peacefully
– LIC matured

No point getting back up faster, if we have to desert our long term partners when they're down. Form is temporary, class is permanent.
