Know why PM Modi is upset with BJP MPs again
New Delhi, May 4: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, an avid user of social media, expressed anger on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs for failing to be active on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
PM Modi raised concern over several ministers who were not using digital platform to reach out to the electorate while chairing a meeting of the Union Council of Ministers on Tuesday.
Power Minister Piyush Goyal, Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and Minister of State Jitendra Singh have been appointed as tutors for those ministers who are yet to take on social media platforms.
They have been asked to aggressively use digital platforms to highlight government's initiatives.
PM Modi has 19.7 million followers on Twitter and over 3 crore likes on his Facebbok page.
"The meeting was mainly about presentations by some ministries on financial and developmental issues, besides on how to give added focus to Modi's pet digital India scheme, Zee News quoted a senior minister as saying on the condition of anonymity.
Many government departments have also been asked to make e-books listing their achievements to make people aware about schemes undertaken by government for their uplift.
