For BJP, public memory may be short but not Twitter’s

After the unfortunate killing and beheading of two Indian soldiers by Pakistan’s Border Action Team on Monday, many old tweets by various Bharatiya Janata Party leaders, including its then prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, have been re-posted by users, to highlight the difference between what they had said in the days of the UPA government in a similar situation, and what is happening now.
