A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi carried out a cryptic tweet hinting at quitting social media, on Tuesday said that he will give away his accounts to inspirational women and detailed how those wishing to “take-over” his profiles can participate in the draw.

“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. Are you such a woman or do you know such inspiring women? Share such stories using #SheInspiresUs,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

PM Modi also unveiled a new campaign to honour inspiring women from all walks of life. Using #SheInspiresUs, the prime minister asked people to share stories of women who inspire them. A select few women will be chosen to run PM Modi’s social media accounts on Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day will be celebrated on March 8 across the globe.

The Prime Minister has over 53.3 million followers on Twitter, 35.2 million on Instagram, 44 million on Facebook and 4.52 million on YouTube.

On Monday, Prime Minister Modi tweeted: “This Sunday, thinking of giving up my social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & YouTube. Will keep you all posted.”

In September 2019, PM Modi was the third most followed world leader on the microblogging site, behind only US President Donald Trump and his predecessor Barack Obama.

The Prime Minister was the first Indian to cross the 50-million followers’ mark on Twitter.
