The Political Tweets Indians Loved In 2014

It was arguably one of the most exciting years in our political history. Narendra Modi swept to power with the promise of "Achhe din anne wale hain (good days are here)." Arvind Kejriwal coached us on the 101 of democracy -- politics is about the "mango man." Our politicians campaigned, fumed and battled it out over social media for the first time. They tweeted messages that moved, angered, amused and shocked us.

These tweets capture the victory, defeat, passion and controversy of momentous political change in India.
