Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched ‘BHIM’ mobile App, named after Baba Bhim Rao Ambedkar. The app was launched by PM Modi, to enable digital payments and transactions for Indian citizens. The app is available on Android smartphones. Meanwhile, people on Twitter reacted hilariously to this move and mocked Rahul Gandhi. While a few said this move by Narendra Modi is a masterstroke against the opposition as Rahul Gandhi supposedly loves the cartoon character ‘Chhota Bheem’. Narendra Modi rolled out the new App at the ‘DigiDhan Mela’ programme at Talkatora Stadium in Delhi, on the last day of the 50-day window provided by the central government to citizens to exchange or deposit old currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denominations.

PM Modi said at the event said, “Download it on a smartphone or on a feature phone. It is not necessary to have the internet for this app. In the next two weeks, one more work is being done, which will increase the power of BHIM so much that you would be able to withdraw money even with your fingerprints.” Meanwhile, a person on Twitter suggested similar apps counter the app by Modi and proposed the names ‘Chhota Bheem’, ‘Shakuni’ and ‘Bheeshm Pitamah’ apps for Congress VP Rahul Gandhi, Delhi CM and Arvind Kejriwal and L.K. Advani respectively. Here’s a look at the funny reactions on Twitter:
