PM Modi or Rahul Gandhi, know who is more popular as BJP and Congress start fresh debate
To show that the general public accepts their leaders, the Congress Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party started a fresh round of verbal warfare on Saturday. This time, the debate focused on how popular Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congressman Rahul Gandhi were, with social media engagement on their own accounts serving as the criteria
The Congress claimed that Rahul Gandhi’s address in Parliament attracted more views than PM Modi’s speech by sharing screenshots of viewership on Sansad TV’s YouTube channel. Meanwhile, the Congress published comparisons between PM Modi’s and Rahul Gandhi’s tweets. The party’s social media staff reports that PM Modi’s past 30 tweets had 21.59 million impressions, compared to 48.13 million for Rahul Gandhi’s most recent 30.
