We’re all guilty of sharing our inner turmoil on social media when we can’t sleep. Perhaps Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was doing the same when he tweeted out that he might dump his social accounts by Sunday.

Narendra Modi then posted the same message on his Facebook and Instagram accounts as well.

Looks like the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader is under pressure.

Rather than asking him to stay, Netizens ended up trolling the PM instead.

They also suggested that he switch to something more age-appropriate for him. So… TikTok anyone?

Speaking of the hate brigade. When Modi accounted that he’d ditch his socials, Indian Opposition leader Rahul Gandhi was one of the first to respond. He suggested;

 “Give up hatred, not social media accounts.”

There is also speculation that this move is a prelude to a social media ban in the country. India is no stranger to social media regulation.

Amid all the hype around Narendra Modi’s ‘Digital India‘ campaign, quitting social media doesn’t make sense. Which explains why most people took his statement to quit social media as a joke.

Meanwhile, certain BJP leaders like ex-Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis’ wife Amruta said that she too will quit social media.
