‘BHEL Down, Millennials Prefer Paani Puri’: #BoycottMillennials Trends After Finance Minister’s Comment

Date:

At a press conference, on Tuesday, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that one of the major factors behind the slowdown in the auto sector has been the change in the mindset of millennials.

According to Sitharaman, the youth in India would rather opt for Ola, Uber and other cab services instead of invest in EMI for a personal vehicle. She also added the Centre was trying to get to the bottom of issues plaguing the automobile sector and find a solution for it, given that thousands of people are losing their jobs.

While we get where Sitharaman may have been coming from, is it really fair to blame the millennials for everything that goes wrong with the world? Growing up, we’ve all heard the desi moms and grandmoms complaining about “aaj kal ke bachche” and their nefarious ways. And now, we have this. Naturally, Indians from all over the world united to start a revolution on this “millennial blaming” ideology, in a way they know best – through words on social media.

Soon after, hashtags like #SayItLikeNirmala and #BoycottMillennials began trending on social media, with tweets blaming the millennial mindset for, well, everything.
