Drop ‘Modi Ka Parivar’ from social media handles: PM urges fans

Days after taking oath as Prime Minister for the third consecutive, Narendra Modi has thanked people of India for their unwavering support and requested them to drop the slogan of ‘Modi Ka Parivar’ from their social media profiles.

“Through the election campaign, people across India added ‘Modi Ka Parivar’ to their social media as a mark of affection towards me. I derived a lot of strength from it. The people of India have given the NDA a majority for the third consecutive time, a record of sorts, and have given us the mandate to keep working for the betterment of our nation,” he said in a post on the microblogging site X.

“With the message of all of us being one family having been effectively conveyed, I would once again thank the people of India and request that you may now remove ‘Modi Ka Parivar’ from your social media properties. The display name may change, but our bond as one Parivar striving for India’s progress remains strong and unbroken,” Modi posted on the site.

Modi came up with the slogan in March this year while addressing a public meeting in  the Adilabad district of Telangana. It was after Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav said at a rally that the Prime Minister “does not have a family of his own”.

Responding to it, the prime minister said that the “entire nation is saying in one voice today, I am Modi’s family”.

Thousands of people, including senior BJP leaders such as Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP president JP Nadda, added the ‘Modi ka Parivar’ slogan on their social media platforms.

The prime minister’s official X handle also got a new display picture and a cover photo, showing Modi bowing before the Constitution.

Modi, who is heading a coalition government this time around, has started working aggressively right after assuming the office of Prime Minister.
