#ByeByeSmriti: Twitter trolls, rejoices, speculates over Irani's transfer to textile ministry

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 6 July 2016, 12:09 IST

Move over, the Kardashians and the Swift-Hiddleston shippers of the world. Our very own now erstwhile Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani successfully broke the internet, as she was replaced with Prakash Javadekar during the path-breaking Cabinet reshuffle that took place on 5 July.

Twitter went berserk, with #ByeByeSmriti trending wildly on top, as people took to the microblogging platform to express their relief, disbelief and speculations surrounding the massive cabinet upheaval.

There were of course the trolls, doling out the finest giggles over Irani's exit, and her taking the helm of the textile ministry.

This guy basically summarizes the sentiment of the majority of the Indian twitterati :

Former MoS for Environment, Forest and Climate Change Prakash Javadekar was elevated to a Cabinet rank in the reshuffling, as he replaced Irani as the Minister for Human Resources and Development.

Javadekar's track record as Minister for Environment, and his RSS affiliations ensured that he wasn't spared from a fair amount of trolling.

And then of course there were those speculating the motivation behind the decision. Many took to Twitter to speculate about the larger picture and the BJP's ulterior motive behind replacing Irani with Javadekar.
