Twitter trend #PoMoneModi: What does that mean?

With the Congress and the Left latching on to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's election rally rhetoric comparing some aspects of Kerala with Somalia, the Twitter is abuzz with a new trend #PoMoneModi.

Referring to the infant death rate in Attapadi, the Prime Minister said that the figure there was higher there than that in Somalia. However, the opposition took the remark as an insult to Kerala.

Hyping the 'Somalia' issue further, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy even shot off a letter to the PM. The Kerala CM said that Modi's remarks have insulted Kerala and its people and demanded that he withdraw the comment.

So what does #PoMoneModi mean? The literal translation of the informal term 'Po Mone' is 'Go Back'. So #PoMoneModi is 'Go Back Modi'.
