Tata group Chairman Ratan Tata was a surprise trending topic following a letter he wrote to PM Manmohan Singh, exhorting the latter to restore government credibility and implement promised reforms. Bharti Singh tweeted: ‘I wish Ratan Tata would become the PM.’ Pranjal Sharma added: ‘Tata seeks committed decision-making instead of noisy, futile and destructive arguments on policy reforms.’ According to a certain Suraj, ‘Most industrialists say what advances their business concerns and Ratan Tata is no exception. A lot of businessmen have lost touch with reality.’ There was also this comment from News Laundry: ‘Ratan Tata tweets in PM’s support. Makes sense. You can’t be an entrepreneur in India without being an eternal optimist.’

Also making headlines was Rahul Gandhi’s decision to jump into active politics. Journalist Rajdeep Sardesai tweeted: ‘So Rahul Gandhi says he is ready for a bigger role.

What a shame.’ Finally, from Faking News: ‘He has been misquoted. At the UPA dinner, he just asked for a bigger roll. Bread roll.’
