Earlier this week, PM Modi had sent social media into a tizzy after he tweeted, “This Sunday, thinking of giving up my social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & YouTube. Will keep you all posted.”
A day after, he cleared the air and informed that on this Women’s Day, he will give away all his social media accounts to ‘inspiring’ women, for a day. “This Women’s Day, I will give away my social media accounts to women whose life & work inspire us. This will help them ignite motivation in millions”, he had tweeted.
