And here it started, this tweet of Chetan was not received warmly by Twitteratis sending some of them in shock while some exploded their anger, their expectations, their high support for Hindutva parties lurking in India all on Twitter.
Well, guys don’t whine about your famous author joining the wrong party, it was just a simple ‘prank’ pulled off by Chetan on ‘April Fool’s’ Day. Here’s how Twitteratis reacted to the prank:
Wrong move also unexpected from u .. I have read many articles before u were against them how come just for being into power u r supporting these corrupted party and praising RG who dun even know what India wants ? Think thousand times before u make it officially

#HappyJumlaDivas. I used to read your books but have stopped it and do not purchase your books any more. People who support autocratic leadership can't be a role model. Good luck to you.

People doubt your integrity
We didn't expect this from you
We should always be with those who have national interest such as @narendramodi sir
You are in a wrong direction

And this Tweet took us all laughing were the account handler is challenging to join a Terrorist group if the Author is serious about his plans
If you join congress ….i will join ISIS . लगी शर्त !

But here is the one who is confident about Chetan’s big move, he tweeted:
Chetan Ji, wish you all the best but do it alone or with some other mature and nationalist in congress, if any! Don’t bank on @RahulGandhi he has sunk many!

For all those people gravely disappointed in your author, those people who have indirectly indicated their support to ‘the’ party, we wish not to speak about, it was a simple prank Chetan Bhagat played for Aril Fool’s Day that got escalated like a wildfire in the forest.
