Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said he is signing off from his social media accounts as he handed it over to seven women achievers who will share their life’s journeys on International Women’s Day.
Extending his greeting for the women of India, PM Modi said, “As I’d said a few days ago, I’m signing off.”
“Greetings on International Women’s Day! We salute the spirit and accomplishments of our Nari Shakti. As I’d said a few days ago, I’m signing off. Through the day, seven women achievers will share their life journeys and perhaps interact with you through my social media accounts,” PM Modi tweeted.
“India has outstanding women achievers in all parts of the nation. These women have done great work in a wide range of sectors. Their struggles and aspirations motivate millions. Let us keep celebrating the achievements of such women and learning from them,” PM Modi added.
The first woman to take over the PM’s Twitter handle is Sneha Mohandoss, the founder of Food Bank India. She introduced herself in a short video.
“You heard of food for thought. Now, it is time for action and a better future for our poor. Hello, I am @snehamohandoss. Inspired by my mother, who instilled the habit of feeding the homeless, I started this initiative called Foodbank India,” she tweeted.
“I work with volunteers, many of whom are outside India, to work towards eradicating hunger. We have over 20 chapters and have impacted several people with our work. We also initiated activities like mass cooking, cooking marathons, breast feeding awareness drives,” Mohandoss added.
