If you are a social media enthusiast, you would have come across a whole lot of #boycottmillennials memes in the last few hours. The hashtag went viral soon after Nirmala Sitharaman stated that the millennial mindset of using services such as Uber and Ola instead of purchasing vehicles had contributed to the auto sector slowdown.

"The automobile and components industry has been affected by BS-VI (Bharat Stage VI) [norms] and the mindsets of millennial, who now prefer to have Ola and Uber rather than committing to buying an automobile," Sitharaman told reporters in a press conference.

However, this statement did not go down so well with the millennials and they expressed their views by starting hashtags like #SayItLikeNirmala and #BoycottMillennials began trending on social media. Have a look.
