Priyanka Gandhi Vadra tweeted for the first time on her official handle
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the general secretary for Indian National Congress has tweeted for the first time on Tuesday. She has posted two tweets, one on Sabarmati Ashram and the other a quote by Mahatma Gandhi, one month after creating her official Twitter account.
"In the simple dignity of Sabarmati, the truth lives on," she said in her first tweet followed by the next tweet “I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent,” with a photo at Sabarmati ashram attached. The first tweet received about 4,500 retweets and 36,000 likes within hours after posting it.
Priyanka Gandhi’s Twitter account has gained nearly 2,38,000 followers even before posting her first tweet and has attracted one lakh followers on the social media platform within 10 hours. For now, she follows seven accounts, including the Congress' official handle and those of her brother and party chief Rahul Gandhi, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sachin Pilot, Ashok Gehlot, Randeep Singh Surjewala and Ahmed Patel.
During the first public rally in Gujarat, Priyanka Gandhi has reminded Mahatma Gandhi. She also blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the central government for ignoring major issues like unemployment and farmers problems.
