The first to tweet from the PM’s Twitter handle was Sneha Mohandoss, founder of Food Bank India.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted this morning he would log out of his social media accounts– “Signing off” and give them to “seven women achievers” who will “share their life’s journeys” on International Women’s Day.
“Greetings on International Women’s Day! We salute the spirit and accomplishments of our Nari Shakti. As I’d said a few days ago, I’m signing off. Through the day, seven women achievers will share their life journeys and perhaps interact with you through my social media accounts,” PM Modi tweeted.
“India has outstanding women achievers in all parts of the nation. These women have done great work in a wide range of sectors. Their struggles and aspirations motivate millions. Let us keep celebrating the achievements of such women and learning from them,” the Prime Minister tweeted.
The first to tweet from the PM’s Twitter handle was Sneha Mohandoss, founder of Food Bank India. “You heard of food for thought. Now, it is time for action and a better future for our poor. Hello, I am @snehamohandoss Inspired by my mother, who instilled the habit of feeding the homeless, I started this initiative called Foodbank India,” Ms Mohandoss tweeted, along with a video introducing herself.
On Monday,PM Modi had left social media users wondering as he tweeted that he was thinking of giving up his Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube accounts in a week. He did not elaborate on the reason behind doing so.
A day later, he shed light on his mystery announcement: on International Women’s Day, he would hand over his social media accounts “to women whose life, work inspire us”.
