Trends like #modijobdo, #modirojgardo, #studentdemands and #unemployment are all over Twitter with #modijobdo trending with 4.63 million tweets by the time of filing this story.
“Students are just asking for a fair and timely job recruitment process. There is no politics, no party, no agenda, no propoganda. It’s an andolan of yuva. #modi_job_do #modi_rojgar_do,” tweeted Sagan Pratap.
As for the demands of the students, another user, Indra Sarkri, wrote, “We want 1) Timely exam 2) Increase in vacancies 3)Fair exams 4) Waiting list 5) Year by year notifications 6) Joining within 1 year.”
Some people even dug out old tweets of Narendra Modi when he protested against the then Congress government for unemployment.
On the situation of unemployment, a user, Umang Alay said, “3,700 PhD holders, 50,000 graduates and over 28,000 post-graduates applied for 62 posts of peon in UP police dept. Enough of “Mann ki Baat” Now “Let’s Talk about Rojgaar ki Baat.”
Political parties also jumped on the trend started by students and criticised the government, with JDU leader Tejasvi Yadav saying India’s human resource is abjectly unemployed and under employed.

The official handle of Congress party also joined the trend and tweeted, “The youth of India have been betrayed by PM Modi and the nation will not tolerate this. #modi_job_do”
Some Twitter users, however, alleged that tweets on the trend are getting deleted.
