New Delhi: The Supreme Court’s verdict calling for a review of all communication restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir within a week saw favorable reactions from opposition parties. The senior BJP leadership, however, is not sharing its reaction– at least not on Twitter – which probably tells you what it thinks of the judgment.

One of the first to applaud the SC order is J&K’s PDP.

Senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram sees SC’s order as a criticism of the Modi government.

However, author Milan Vaishnav attacks the top court – read why.

Union Minister Smriti Irani is merciless in her attack on Deepika Padukone for her support to JNUSU President Aishe Ghose and others but then concedes that it was Padukone’s right to do so… Huh?

Aha, what have we here? A tug of words between Delhi’s Stephanians and BJP’s B. L. Santosh.

Meanwhile, Sri Lankan President Rajapaksa Gotabaya describes how he deals with students. Do we even need to mention what he is alluding to?

Lawyer Prashant Bhushan has a one way ticket for Prime Minister Modi…

Rightwing author Shefali Vaidya’s transphobic comment about an individual at the JNU protests has appalled many on Twitter. Here are two scathing reactions.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, wherever he is, finds something objectionable about Modi’s meeting with his “crony capitalist and super rich friends”.

Twitterati also dug into actor Juhi Chawla’s past and came up with this 2013 tweet of hers. Chawla has recently spoken in favour of Prime Minister Modi and shut down a reporter who questioned her.

Britain’s Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s decision to step back as royal seniors has evoked mixed reactions: Republican Mark Walker is sarcastic — or is he appreciating President Trump? Journalist Piers Morgan is very clear what he thinks of Prince Harry’s move…

And Madame Tussaud’s museum has taken their threat all too literally.
