  • 19. Examples Narendra Modi
  • 20. Examples Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was one of the first, if not the first, mainstream politician to realise the potential of these technological developments. Modi took to the internet around the same time the youth of India did.  Initially, it started with his website which highlighted important government programmes and initiatives. As innovations became available for use, his social media accounts, YouTube channel and ‘subscriptions’ options were quickly created and a content-linking mechanism in this ‘digital structure’, if you will, was put in place Modi’s enormous popularity, dismally absent in mainstream media coverage, resulted in lakhs of followers expressing their admiration through their keyboards.  In a blog titled ‘Making a Difference through Social Media’, Modi expressed gratitude for what he learns from these “wonderful people” on social media.
  • 21. Examples As the 2012 Gujarat Vidhan Sabha elections approached, the ‘digital structure’ was readied and popularised. While traditional campaigning was irreplaceable, what Modi saw with his digital structure was something far-sighted – the ability to tap the first-time voter and the youth in the youngest nation of the world. He knew where he would find them in their free time – hooked to emails and social media sites instead of prime-time television debates; on their laptops, phones or tablets and not at political rallies. Thus began the season of active campaigning on internet and social media
