Priyanka Gandhi makes grand entry to Twitter - One lac followers within hours


Daijiworld Media Network

New Delhi, Feb 11 : Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, whose political debut was marked with much fanfare, announced her Twitter entry just before her Lucknow roadshow on Monday, February 11. Within a few hours of joining Twitter, one of the most popular platforms of social media, the Twitterati accorded her a grand welcome, with the number of followers crossing the 1,00,000.



Earlier, the Congress Twitter handle announced her entry to the social media platform:


Within the first hour, the number of followers crossed the 25,000 mark, and at the end of the day, the figure stands at 1,11,000.

Priyanka Gandhi has not posted any tweets so far. She has however started following a few people, including her brother and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi as well as Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sachin Pilot, Ashok Gehlot, Randeep Singh Surjewala, Ahmed Patel and the Congress official Twitter handle.

Social media is poised to become a key element in the upcoming general elections, both as a medium to launch political attacks and to garner mass support. Priyanka Gandhi's entry to Twitter is expected to further boost Congress' presence on this front.

The same day, Priyanka made her first visit to Uttar Pradesh since being made in-charge of the eastern part of the state after her entry into active politics last month.


Priyanka roars into UP with mega roadshow:


Making her political debut as Congress general secretary, Priyanka Gandhi on Monday roared into Uttar Pradesh with thousands cheering as her cavalcade slowly made its way through the city during a roadshow, being seen as launch of the party's campaign in the state ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.

Accompanied by Congress president Rahul Gandhi and incharge of the western region, Jyotiraditya Scindia, the beaming 47-year-old sported a kurta and a stole, and waved at the teeming party workers jostling for a glimpse.

"Come, let's build a new future, new politics with me. Thank you," she said in her message to the people ahead of the visit to the state.

When the three leaders embarked on a roughly 25-km-long roadshow, from the airport to the party headquarters, to woo voters in the Lok Sabha polls, rose petals and marigold garlands were showered at their cavalcade.






As her 'rath' inched through major thoroughfares, enthusiastic people and party members took vantage positions to click a prized photo.

Enthusiastic Congress workers took to the streets to celebrate the arrival of the two new AICC incharges, with party tricolours and hoardings all over giving the city a festive look.

Since early morning, Congress workers were seen busy giving final touches to the arrangements for the roadshow, distributing food packets, tea and water to passersby. Patriotic songs were played on loudspeakers perking up the mood.

Some posters showed Priyanka in 'Durga Mata' avatar riding on a lion.

"Maa Durga ka roop behen Priyankaji (Sister Priyankaji is Maa Durga's incarnation) said one poster, while some others highlighted her resemblance to Indira Gandhi, her grandmother.

Besides workers of other front organisations of the party, some Congress workers -- said to be members of Priyanka sena, a little known outfit -- were seen wearing pink T-shirts with her photograph.

"With the Priyanka Sena at the Nehru Bhawan, Lucknow it is almost celebration here," tweeted Sushmita Dev, president of all India Mahila Congress.

An enthusiastic party general secretary Shailendra Tewari has customised his car to welcome Priyanka with the banner reading, "Aa gai priyanka...baj gaya danka... brashtachar ki ab lagegi Lanka..."

A day before her maiden visit to Uttar Pradesh as Congress general secretary, Priyanka Gandhi said that together with the people of the state she hopes to start a "new kind of politics" in which everyone will be a stakeholder.

    I strongly feel Priyanka Gandhi is capable of wiping the BJP out for another few terms. She is quite strong candidate . Look at only presence in the group makes a big difference and if she stand for election it is guaranteed to wipe out the opposition.

    Dont know if rahul really thinks they can sweep UP.
    If hes thinking, then there is no greater fool.

    Remember, during last UP election, when SP and congress came together.
    All the media thought it was a done deal.
    Then you know ,what happened?

    This is not 1970's where a slogen" garibi hatao" or the looks will work anymore.
    The young voter is not concerned about how anybody looks, but how he has performed all these years.
    What has been his corruption record so far?

    Now Rahul is not the same once upon a time, when he used to walk under the shadow of Mom/si
    What we watch today is, Rahul’s political maturity and determination to challenge what is impossible. All depends how people/public accept him and try to bring a change in stagnant political situation under BJP/Modi team.
    At least he is trying to build stronger opposition in the parliament and that is a must for a better democratice rule. or else, Modi will finish the game very soon.

    Congrats to Priyanka, and the entire Congress party, and their allies all over India.

    Looking forward for a truly democratic India, as we had enough of lies and fake promises for the last 5 years.

    I was delighted seeing (live) Priyanka's Rath passing in front of "Alambagh Bus Terminal, Lucknow", where I had traveled from Jaipur, during first week of January 2019.

    BJP mukth India ki Jai. Long live democratic India. Jai Hind!!!

    2. No need to wear 'Skull Caps' too...

    3. Obviously told only to wave his hands and keep his mouth shut and smile within intervals of 5 minutes.

    4. He had according to close sources read 'Ramayan' and the 'Quaran' and prepared a fusion song
    titled 'Ram -Rahim'...but was told to keep it on hold...

    5. His sppech writer and idea givers were asked to go on long leave.(bataaata ...sonawalla)

    New dawn in India's political history after 5 years.
    Now BJP army of political leaders will start firing abuses left right and centre.
    We want some relief from Modi's 24x7 speeches of achievements, hatred towards Gandhi family and boasting his achiements and never admitting any of his faults. Rafale deal is suppressed and those who go against BJP are being punished through IT, ED, CBI and by media (Republic TV).
    Priyanka you have charisma of being centre of attraction, crowd puller and teach all the fugitives of BJP what Nari shakti is !
    BJP gang members are being blinded by false pride and headweight.

    Yes Mr Karkera Nobody knows who will become next BJP president you are absolutely right because to become BJP president there are some requirements such as
    1) How many no of murder cases against him.
    2) How many rape charges against him.
    3) How many fraud charges against him.

    So to be eligible one must have maximum no of cases.

    Many Modi supporters, known for peddling lies and pushing the hate agenda using social media, have recently had their accounts suspended or banned. Last year, Modi supporters both on social media and TV channels had launched a coordinated attack on Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey during his visit to India. Also joining the anti-Twitter brigade then was Republic TV’s Arnab Goswami, who had called Twitter a ‘biased and prejudiced’ platform.
    Supporters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday staged a silent march in Delhi to protest Twitter’s alleged biases towards the BJP and its Hindutva politics. BJP supporters were urged to gather in Saket before their planned march towards the Twitter headquarters.
    Twitter CEO and other high-ranking officials from the microblogging site have refused to appear before a parliamentary panel, led by BJP MP Anurag Thakur. This has come as a considerable snub to the BJP MP, who had taken to Twitter last week to flaunt his action.
    If Twitter ever wants to make a database of rapists, criminals, and child molesters, all it has to do is check handles on #ProtestAgainstTwitter with Namo or Hindu deity DPs.
    This "Proud to be followed by Modi" Bhakth's are shut by Twitter who owns many fake accounts even from countries Indians have ever landed and praised the death of journalist Gauri Lankesh is vanishing.
    Unlike Prime Minister Modi followers who trends abuse, rape, murder, hope Priyanka Gandhi manage to turn these followers into better Indians who work for India into a successive nation
