On Holi, Narendra Modi decides to follow Arvind Kejriwal on twitter, Delhi CM says ‘Thank You’


It may be a news to many of you but, as it emerged on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi wasn’t following Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on twitter.

That, however, changed on Thursday, the day Indians were celebrating Holi, the festival of colours.

Kejriwal tweeted, “Sir, thank u for following me. Happy Holi. आज गिले शिकवे भूलने का दिन है। Hope better Centre-Delhi cooperation in future (sic)”

Modi, from his personal twitter handle @narendramodi follows 1371 people, that include several leaders from rival parties such as Captain Amrinder Singh and Prithviraj Chavan of Congress and Sitaram Yechury from the CPIM.

His @narendramodi account has 18.8 million followers, while Kejriwal has 7.28 million.

People Modi’s followed for a long time also include many of his supporters.

Among the media persons followed by him are several BJP sympathisers including the Zee News editor Sudhir Chaudhary.

Here are the notable accounts that Narendra Modi follows on twitter and their possible reasons:

@RealHistoryPic: A newly launched twitter account, which takes sarcastic dig at politicians of all hues including Modi using historical perspective. This clearly shows that our prime minister does enjoy humour.

@NitishKumar : His bete noire in Bihar and Modi’s rivalry with him is well known. This shows that our prime minister does possess statesman-like trait. 

@sudhirchaudhary: Controversial journalist with Zee. Modi allegedly likes him a lot. This shows the love and respect for ‘free speech’ our prime minister has.

@Kailashkher : A singer, who too publicly expressed his support for Modi on several occasions. But Modi following him doesn’t have anything to do with his support for the saffron party. We would like to think that it’s because the prime minister loves to listen to composition such as Allah Ke Bande…

@SitaramYechury: Following Comrade Yechury clearly demolishes all those allegations hurled against our prime minister that his government was anti-JNU leaders Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, all left leaning student leaders.

@BritishMonarchy: We have no idea why our prime minister follows this account. We don’t even want to hazard a guess here.

    Because our PM is a too practical person.Want to learn the power of overpowering

    The Aam Aadmi Party’s agenda for Punjab is clear: form the government in 2017, when the state goes to polls. The young party which had managed to bag 24.4 per cent the total vote share in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections in the state has already launched a series of campaigns to reach out to the voters. But the Badals know the pulse of Punjab and are actively pursuing caste based politics along with religion based politics. They are wooing poorer people who are also mostly SCs with Atta Dal scheme. Wooing Jat Sikh peasantry with adequate electricity supply. Wooing Sikh votes with high profile weapon display yatra (which are reputed to be fakes) and taking slightly sympathetic view for hard liners so called Panthic agenda. Also they control Gurudwara funds through crony Makkar. They are scaring Hindu community and BJP by portraying themselves as only ones to control hardline Sikh elements. Akalis will seek to split opposition votes between aap, congress and other proxies like Bains brothers while keeping their vote bank intact. BJP only on coattails of Akalis and as their side kicks. Even now they are sidelined and unable to get a share of spoils which are being enjoyed solely by select few akalis.

    Watch Out! Corrupt Congress and BJP… AAP will arrest and prosecute you for corruption and crimes against Indian people. Indian people will not stop. No more corruption, no more nation looting, no more staying in power for 30, 40, 50 years, no more installing stupid children in power, no more dynasty politics, no more stealing from government treasury, no more special interests, no more appointing corrupt judges, no more controlling CBI, no more heading all sports bodies by ministers, no more government harassment of common man by income tax, RTO, police, traffic police, passport office, licenses and permits, no more college donations, no more back door admissions, no more escapes to rich and privileged from back door, no more criminal and immoral MLAs, MPs and ministers, no more mistreatment of women, no more VIP culture and no more shameless chumacha culture.

    Congress and BJP… Both of you are corrupt, dynastic, nepotistic, nation looting, criminal and blood suckers. AAM ADAMI is going to disrupt their game. AAM ADAMI is putting all corrupt politicians and their chaumachas on notice. We are coming to get you. The Aam Adami of India is going to watch every politician every day going forward. We will watch, be on their as*s every day, expose their crimes, corruption, stupid family members’ misbehavior, nation looting, rapes, molestations, favoritism and any misuse of power and will not rest until we will throw them in jail.
