Chetan Bhagat irks Indians against Modi
New Delhi, Dec 5: Renowned writer Chetan Bhagat once again made headlines with one of his tweets which seems to have irked many people on the micro-blogging site Twitter. Bhagat, who frequently has been criticised over his tweets on several issues, tweeted about the hero and his achievement in the block buster movie -- Slumdog Millionaire.

Though Bhagat did not name Narendra Modi in his tweet but it was visible that his tweet was nothing but a sharp comparison between the hero, a chaiwalah, and the Gujarat CM who is also the PM candidate of BJP.

Bhagat's tweet says, "In Slumdog Millionaire, a chaiwallah (the hero -- Jamal Malik) won the top prize. The world loved that story. Remember that."

Chetan Bhagat's tweet was a criticism against SP leader Naresh Agarwal

It can be understood that Bhagat's statement was a sharp criticism against Samajwadi Party leader Naresh Agarwal who had claimed that Modi can not become the PM of the country as he was a "chaiwallah (a tea seller)."

Taking a dig at Agarwal, Bhagat extended his support to the Gujarat CM by saying that "chaiwalah got the top prize". His tweet was trolled hugely as the tweet was re-tweeted  725 times and was marked as "favourite" by 247 people. However, the same tweet invited wrath of anti-Modi people.
