BJP hides facebook reviews amid online protest by Telugus !


BJP removes review option from FB, after Telugu people flood with negative reviews.

It’s not been the best week for Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) in Telugu speaking states. The saffron party is facing the criticism online on its Facebook page. The budget presented by Union Minister Arun Jaitely, almost immediately incurred the wrath of people of Andhra Pradesh.

BJP was lambasted for depriving Andhra Pradesh of special category status, Railway Zone, Kadapa Steel plant. Thousands of users reviewed the page with one-star rating to expressing their dissent. The number of one-star went up from 34988 votes by Sunday. The overall rating of the page came down to 1.1.

Consequently, BJP removed the review option from its page, due to the flood of negative reviews.

Meanwhile, users of twitter are expressing dissent using several tags #APDemandsSpecialStatus #WeWantRailwayZoneForVizag #BudgetNeglectsAP #StandForApSpecialStatus.
