They had criticised the Prime Minister for several public policy issues, ranging from demonetisation and farmers’ bills to the Agnipath scheme and handling of the COVID pandemic. A Hoarding in the city that sparked a row featured the hashtag #ByeByeModi.
‘Money Heist’ hoarding accusing Modi of robbing the entire nation was put up at LB Nagar. The next day, youngsters in typical ‘Money Heist’ masks – made famous by the popular Netflix series were seen in many places holding placards that read: ‘We only rob banks. You rob the whole nation. #BYEBYEMODI.’

Several posters and flex boards that mock the Prime Minister and the BJP have sprung up in the city ahead of the visit by Narendra Modi and other senior leaders of the party.
Some billboards put up by the TRS with “permission” were allegedly removed by the BJP cadres, leading to the former registering a complaint with Cyberabad Police Commissioner Stephen Ravindra.
The convergence of BJP’s national executive meet and TRS’s rally in support of presidential candidate Yashwant Sinha, has increased the political temperature in Hyderabad. Ahead of the programs, both parties have been engaged in turf wars to occupy public spaces to showcase their strength in the form of advertisement hoardings ahead of these two events.

People from the ‘Money Heist’ gang were standing in front of banks, LIC offices, ATMs, and railway stations. #JumlaKingModi was trending on Sunday. TRS Social Media convenor Krishank Manne tweeted a video, showing several people leaving Modi’s meeting venue while he was speaking, and added that this showed that Telangana was not interested in ‘jumlas’.

Jumping into the billboard controversy between the BJP and TRS, the Congress has released a photoshopped image of the Netflix parody hoarding, in which they mocked both the parties.
Keeping in mind the political situation, public officials have already issued traffic guidelines in the city.
