Chetan Bhagat slams Twitter critics of Five Point Someone in DU

Writer Chetan Bhagat has taken to twitter to react to the critical reception of Delhi University's decision to include his debut novel Five Point Someone in one of its courses. 

"Can understand elitists, fakes, wannabe white, you- bloody-Indian types are upset DU has added my books in their course. My sympathies," he tweeted. 

The move to have the book as one of the options for the Popular Literature paper in the Generic Elective course, was met with criticism online with #fivepointsomeone trending. 

"#fivepointsomeone DU's next move will be including '50 shades of Grey' in the psychology syllabus," a tweet read. 

A user wrote, "When you have #chetanbhagat in your syllabus, there's full chance of you turning out to be half- literate #FivePointSomeone #DU." 

Several tweets, some addressed to the HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar, also questioned the eligibility of Bhagat's book to qualify as good literature. 

"Does #FivePointSomeone qualify as a good literature, as it is now a part of #delhiuniversity syllabus. @PrakashJavdekar @HRDMinistry," a Twitter user wrote.
