Priyanka Gandhi relies on Mahatma Gandhi's quotes for her first few Twitter posts
Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi delivered her debut political speech in Gujarat’s Gandhinagar on March 12. A day after which, she also expressed her thoughts on Twitter for the very first time. She, who joined the micro-blogging site in February 2019, pushed two tweets in a time span of five minutes. Both her tweets, which had a reference to Mahatma Gandhi, garnered around 30k likes and over 8k retweets in less than 11 hours.
Her first tweet was about the Father of the Nation’s Sabarmati Ashram and the other is the latter’s quote on non-violence. In the second picture, she also attached a photo of a room from Sabarmati Ashram with the chakra (spinning wheel). The quote is on non-violence and how it appears to be only ‘temporary’ good as the evil it brings with it is ‘permanent'. It’s also interesting to note that in just a month, Priyanka has earned over 242k followers on the social media platform!
As of now, she follows seven accounts, including the Congress’ official handle and those of her brother and party chief Rahul Gandhi, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sachin Pilot, Ashok Gehlot, Randeep Singh Surjewala and Ahmed Patel.
Priyanka recently joined politics from eastern Uttar Pradesh. While addressing a rally, she took on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the central government for focusing on ‘useless issues’ and putting a blind eye to the core issues such as women safety, farm crisis and unemployment.
“I am saddened by what is happening in our country today. I want you all to be more aware. That is the best sign of patriotism... Your vote is your weapon. You are not supposed to harm someone with that weapon. But it will make you stronger,” she said.
