On Duty All The Time And No Leaves: That’s PM Modi For You

Updated on 13 May, 2019 at 2:32 pm By

Addressing the nation on India’s 68th Independence Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called himself not as a ‘pradhan mantri’ (PM) but a ‘pradhan sewak’ (prime servant).

He has also said that he has devoted every element of his “body and spirit” in fulfilling with fullest sincerity and honesty the responsibility and honour entrusted by people of serving them as pradhan sevak. And he is walking the talk now.

The answer to his official working hours, was “he’s on duty all the time”.

 

 

During the past 18 months, the government data showed that the prime minister had 18 foreign trips and spent 89 days away from the country.

From May 26, 2014, to October 26, 2015, Modi went on 10 trips, spanning 11 days, within India. That makes it a total of 100 days on the move within one and a half years.

In another RTI query reply, the PMO said Modi himself manages his personal Twitter and Facebook accounts. But when it comes to the PM’s official social media accounts, his office says those are managed by the PMO.

The PMO did not give any reply to a question on who helps the PM send tweets in foreign languages such as Japanese, Hebrew, Mandarin, Russian and Korean.

An earlier RTI application has revealed that Internet speed at the Prime Minister’s Office is 34 Mbps. This is quite evident in the quick tweets that his official account sends.
