On Monday, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and Union Housing Minister Hardeep Puri joined Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a special event to reveal a new national emblem that has been installed atop the new Parliament building.
Twitter however, reacted in an unusual manner. #ModiHaiToMushkilHai started trending on Twitter, with users claiming that the new symbol was more “aggressive” than the former- a symbol for how the Modi administration is more powerful than the ones before.
