New Delhi, July 20: We are living in interesting times. Every political debate has a social media connection. Why not? After all, all political parties have mastered the art of using social media platforms to their own benefits.
Hours ahead of the all-important no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government in the Lok Sabha on Friday, both the supporters of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress were busy trending subjects close to their hearts on Twitter.
While the BJP supporters and politicians enthusiastically tweeted about #BhookampAaneWalaHai (can be loosely translated to earthquake will come) to take a dig at Congress president Rahul Gandhi, the Congress' social media gang trended the hashtag--#KyaHuaTeraVaada (what happened to your promises?)--to remind Prime Minister Modi about his "unfulfilled promises".
Back in 2016, then Congress vice president Rahul accused the BJP government of not allowing him to speak in Parliament despite his speech being ready, and said an "earthquake will come" if he gets the opportunity to speak.
Since Rahul is going to be the first Congress leader to speak on no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha, the BJP reminded him about his "earthquake will come" remark.
The Congress leaders and supporters raised questions about PM Modi's various promises including two crore jobs, minimum support price for farmers and fight against black money, to name a few.
Here we bring you a few tweets that talk about #BhookampAaneWalaHai and #KyaHuaTeraVaada:
'एक सर के बदले दस सर'; 'दो करोड़ नौकरियाँ'; 'काला धन'; 'न्यूनतम समर्थन मूल्य + 50%'; 'राफ़ेल की क़ीमत'; 'पेट्रोल/डीज़ल की क़ीमतें'; 'महिला सुरक्षा'; 'सबका साथ, सबका विकास'..... #KyaHuaTeraVaada— Pawan Khera (@Pawankhera) July 20, 2018

No 15 lakhs
Only foreign trips
Only Sanghi's in judicial system
Only fake promise
Only sold out journalist and news
Rain already started in New Delhi and earthquake... I don’t know as no confidence of 38 minutes speech by someone special might be killing #BhookampAaneWalaHai— Neelkant Bakshi (@neelkantbakshi) July 20, 2018
Country deserves good time!!!
