Twitter Reacts To Raghuram Rajan’s Departure Annoucement

RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan ended months of feverish speculation by announcing that he wouldn’t be seeking a second term in office. In typical Rajan style, the announcement was low-key and formal – instead of announcing his departure in a packed press conference, Rajan chose to write a letter to his colleagues at RBI. And the public reaction was immediate – while many bemoaned the loss of one of India’s brightest minds from its shores, a small minority didn’t seem all that displeased at his departure.


Many implied that his exit was politically motivated.

And the opposition didn’t miss their chance to, well, oppose. 

While others felt it didn’t matter either way.

And Twitter being Twitter, some saw the funny side of it.
