Modi follows 140 rivals on twitter
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all into social networking site, Twitter, where he has shown his broad mindedness by following his political rivals on the site. The festival of Holi seemed all colourful for the Prime Minister.
Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal along with his Deputy Chief Manish Sisodia, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and surprisingly, Digvijaya Singh, who is famous for his sarcastic comments against the BJP. Nitish Kumar, a friend who later turned to be a rival, the Chief Minister of Bihar was also one among them.
Reading AAP Chief’s tweet, it is clearly understandable that he wasn’t the least moved by PM’s move, “Sir, thank u for following me. Happy Holi. आज गिले शिकवे भूलने का दिन है। Hope better Centre-Delhi cooperation in future.”
Modi also followed Lalu Prasad Yadav, who attacked BJP and RSS equally on caste based reservation, which eventually flipped the Bihar elections favouring JD(U)-RJD coalition.
Modi wasn’t hesitant in following Lalu Prasad’s son, Tejashwi Yadav, the deputy chief of Bihar, who replied to the follow with a thanks and centre aided development plans for Bihar. His tweet read, “Thanks @narendramodi Ji for following me on twitter. Hope to make it worth out here for speedy responses & centre aided development of Bihar.”
Apart from all the political rivals, Modi also followed @realhistorypics, quite a popular account in terms of their wit and sarcasm about politicians. The account had tweeted witty comments on PM earlier but they were honoured to have been followed by Modi. They tweeted, ” Whoah!! Honored to be followed by PM Shri @narendramodi ji. :))”
Ever since Modi took on the rule, most government officials and departments have started working on social media networks and luckily for the citizens, Most informations are also available on media free of cost.
Long before this twitter follow started Modi followed back people who supported his ideologies and party online. Few twitter users particularly tweeted about being unfollowed by Narendra Modi because they posted something against the basic, straight norms of the government.
Bhaiyyaji, a user tweeted, “The biggest tragedy is that @narendramodi use to follow me before 2014 elections, Then unfollowed, #IndvsPak me active thhe kya .”
Few people even did not mind sharing their distress on Modi following Arvind Kejriwal. @byrahulchhibber tweeted, “@narendramodi has decided 2 follow thug @ArvindKejriwal so I am unfollowing him,he has million followers so #Indian like me don’t matter.”
