New Delhi, March 17: In recent times, we have heard Prime Minister Narendra Modi calling himself Pradhan Sevak (head servant) of the country, thus trying to touch a base among the citizens that he is not the country's ruler, rather a person who has been elected as the PM to serve the nation.
A tweet by a Gurgaon-based computer science graduate, Ajeet Singh, on PM Modi's Pradhan Sevak avatar that has garnered massive response on social media sums up why the PM likes to be addressed as a man who works for his country.
"One of my follower casually asked me: Do you work for @narendramodi ? I smiled and said: No dear, he works for me.. #IAmNewIndia," tweeted Singh.
In response to Singh's tweet, PM Modi wrote, "Absolutely. Happy to be the Pradhan Sevak for each and every Indian."

The PM's reply to Singh has been retweeted thousands of time. After the Bharatiya Janata Party won the Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand assembly elections with a massive mandate, the PM in an address to his party colleagues asked them to become more humble and serve the nation religiously.
