(Web Desk) -- The Nepali internet users on Sunday trended #GoHomeIndianMedia to mock Indian media and relief workers for staging more photo ops than participating in actual relief work in the quake-hit Nepal.
Nepalis have complained of Indian media – notorious for their sensationalist coverage – covering the earthquake and relief activities like it is a TV serial using their infamous visual and sound effects.
Nepali Twitterati also complained that Indian media’s coverage has been more concentrated on how India is participating in the relief activities instead of reporting real issues faced by the earthquake affectees.
Here are some of the tweets as originally gathered by an Indian online publication Scroll.in.
