News has broken that PM Modi is planning to address the nation on New Year’s Eve. This will be his first address since the one he gave on November 8th wherein he announced demonetization. It would be delivered when 50 days of sacrifice which Modi had asked for ends and the country moves into a New Year. So naturally people reacted and speculations were rife as to what exactly Modi would announce this time round.
Here are some of the best we could find:
We know Modi likes to be a step ahead but this would be taking it to a whole new level
I am predicting that Modiji will cancel 2017 and directly make country move to 2018. https://t.co/ALzL7JBV5p

Plausible, considering he is a teetotaler and also hails from Gujarat:
In his New Year’s Eve speech Modi will announce nationwide prohibition thereby taking the wind out of most new year parties

Is there a deal between Modi ji and alcohol companies?
Modi’s scheduled speech on New Year’s Eve has ensured that people will consume even more alcohol -either to drown their sorrows or in relief

This time, time for address is preponed by 30mins. That makes it, 7.30 for corrupt folks. Saade saathvi for corruption. :)

Some displayed their poetic side:
Modi’s Speech on 31st December:
Old Monk is Rum
USA mein Trump

Well maybe Modi would quote this Seinfeld clip to justify his decision:
Modi’s speech on 31st- मित्रों, आज रात 12 बजे से, वो सभी शादियां जो 16 मई 2014 से पहले हुई थी, लीगल टेंडर नहीं रहेंगी यानि रद्द की जाती हैं
