India’s bestselling author, Chetan Bhagat is known for wading into controversies and igniting debates on Twitter time and again. Though his views usually draw a lot of flak, it never dissuaded him from commenting on contentious issue.

So, when the BJP picked Yogi Adityanath as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Bhagat posted a series of tweets expressing his displeasure over the appointment. Without mincing his words, he remarked about the chief minister designate : “#YogiAdityanath as UP CM. Because when you make the naughtiest guy in class the class monitor, he behaves the best”.

Bhagat didn’t stop there. He again took a dig at Adityanath and wrote, “If you are in politics and the Indian media starts hating you, you have a really bright future. #modi #yogiadityanath”. Referring to the BJP’s agenda, he wrote,”With the pro-development people in the bag, it was time for the BJP to cater to its other base, the pro-hindutva types. #YogiAdityanath”.

Here is brief look at some of his earlier tweets on issues that divided Twitterati.

      Indians have been making wrong choices eversince Modi came to the centrestage of politics. Most Hindus are tolerant yet getting deceived by Modi's false development plank. Sad that Indians prefer deception and hypocrisy more than sanity.

            Indians gave one opportunity to kejriwal too had he did better could have wrested Punjab easily. But he missed the narrative. And whatever at least PM is decisive and pulling up nicely
