Delhi elections are noisy on ground and becoming creative in virtual world. Apart from the battle for power there is a battle of hashtags being waged.
As the nominations closed on Wednesday in Delhi, the Twitterati hit the overdrive with creative, satirical and aggressive hashtags. Each hashtag a shelf-life on the trend table and gathers comments from all and sundry. In fact, apart from social media addicts, political parties are deeply indulged in the battle of hashtags.
Different hashtags #AAPvsBJP, #AAPkiDilli, #CheckmateAAP, #BediVsKejriwal, #WalkwithKejriwal, #UturnBJP, #KiranBedi4DelhiCM are seen trending over Twitter almost every day.
If u ask any tough question to Bedi..Either she will block u or leave interview midway and will run away like she did yesterday. #IRunBedi— Anshi Singh (@Anshi2017) January 21, 2015
The hashtag battle intensified with the joining of Kiran Bedi into the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Those who favoured her decision floated the hashtags like #CheckmateAAP, while those who did not like her joining politics came up with #KiranBediUTurn, among others.
In fact AAP leaders and supporters slammed Bedi over her decision by posting screen grab her earlier tweets which were anti BJP and anti Modi. It was further intensified when former AAP leader Shazia Ilmi joined BJP
Interestingly, in this battle, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is a step ahead of the BJP. AAP members and supporters are posting rally picture, TV and print news on social media. BJP too is thriving but facing stiff competition with AAP.
