While we all have joked about Prime Minister saying the word ‘mitron’, a recent analysis by HT has revealed that it is not the word he has used most in his speeches.
The data collected from the PMO website, which provides transcripts of all the speech made by PM Modi since he became the prime minister shows that he used the ‘mitron’ just 61 times that too in just 40 speeches.
The data also revealed that PM Modi has given a total of 440 speeches over the past two-and-half year and more than half it was in Hindi.
Further, these doesn’t include speeches made during his campaign addresses or any unofficial speeches.
While the word ‘Mitron’ is associated with PM Modi the most, he has used the word ‘bhaiyon-behenon’ more by nearly 12.3 times.
In his 440 official speeches, he has used ‘bhaiyon-behenon’ about 750 times while other popular words that he uses are ‘deshwasiyon’ – 271 times, ‘saathiyon’ – 81 times and ‘mahanubhav’ – 121 times.
The word ‘Mitron‘ had reached its popularity the most on the New Year’s eve when Social media went crazy in anticipation of PM Modi’s post demonetization speech and made jokes about the word.
The popularity of the word become such that ‘Social’, a chain of retro-bars in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore even announced that they will offer: a pint of beer for just Rs 31 each time PM Modi uttered the word ‘mitron’ during his speech.
Unfortunately, the crowd was left disappointed because PM Modi did not utter the word even once.
