 After Indian Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman blamed the mindset of millennials for adversely affecting the automobile industry, hashtags like #BoycottMillenialls and #SayItLikeNirmalaTai have thrown up thousands of tweets.
"The automobile and components industry has been affected by BS6 and the mindsets of millennial, who now prefer to have Ola and Uber rather than committing to buying an automobile," Sitharaman had said.
Twitterati were quick to react and thousands of users were tweeting using hashtags like #BoycottMillenialls and #SayItLikeNirmalaTai.
"Indians are not cooking food at home because everyone is ordering it from @ZomatoIN and @UberEats #SayItLikeNirmalaTai," a user said.
