With arch rivals contending to establish their feet in Bihar, social media platforms have become an easy bait for both Nitish Kumar and Narendra Modi to unravel their plans for the state and their persistent digs at each other. Narendra Modi being a cock-a-hoop political twitterati has managed to scoop the best out of the social media platform till this date; whereas, the vanguard of Bihar Asmita, Nitish Kumar, is still lagging behind with less than 60,000 followers in his pocket.

However, debunking his lacklustre twitter account, Nitish Kumar is all game for the real battle to begin. Toeing on the lines of his adversary, the JD(U) leader had a tete-a-tete with journalists across the board on twitter yesterday.

While scrolling through the string of tweets thronging the leader’s account one might get an inkling of his intent of getting back at Narendra Modi for his DNA jibe. Moreover, it seems that leader is full of vengeance and the assembly election triumph might render him the coveted solace.

Important issues discussed in the  Twitter tete-a-tete

As India’s heavy lift rocket nicknamed ‘Bahubali’ and its passenger Chandrayaan-2 gear up for their historic flight to the Moon on July 15, Twitter users shared what they would like to take to the lunar surface, with most of them mentioning the national flag.

However, Twitter users also shared many interesting ideas. Gautam Singh, for example, talked about taking a geographical map of India.

“So if an Intelligent ET will find it They can find where do we belong, A Flag will be useless for them,” tweeted Singh.

Some users even suggested that Indian soil should be transported to the Moon, while others pointed out to the planetary protection norms aimed to preserve our ability to study other worlds as they exist in their natural states.

Planetary protection refers to the practice of protecting solar system bodies from contamination by Earth life.

“We can sanitize everything before taking it there. Just like it is done today and was done for the flags,” said one user.

“Yep. Very much. Indian soil in the moon. Such a nice headline,” the user added.

The question “what you would take to the Moon” was originally posed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

ISRO said that it received interesting answers from people around the country, while sharing some of the the wish lists.

Chandrayaan-2 will attempt to soft land the lander, Vikram, and rover, Pragyan, in a high plain between two craters, Manzinus C and Simpelius N, at a latitude of about 70 degree south.

The Indian spacecraft and rover would land near the lunar south pole by September 6 or 7.
