In just about four days of its launch, the official Facebook page of the Prime Minister’s Office has attracted over 1.1 million ‘likes’.

The cover photo on the Facebook page of PMO India shows 63-yead-old Narendra Modi at work. He is an avid user of the social media.

In the account, the PMO has posted several pictures including those of the prominent visitors greeting the new Prime Minister.

Apart from the pictures, the Prime Minister’s message on the occasion of ‘World No Tobacco day’ is in the page. It has got thousands of ‘likes’, besdies hundreds of comments and suggestions.

While one of Facebook users in his comments in response to the PM’s message requests that prices of tobacco products be increased by levying high taxes to reduce consumption, another person suggests that consumption of tobacco products should be banned in public places. Scores of other comments by different users express a range of opinion.

“The official Facebook page of the Prime Minister’s Office has crossed a million likes in 4 days of being launched,” the PMO said on Twitter. The PMO’s twitter account also has nearly 1.4 million followers.

Modi has been actively utilising the social media to connect with people and expects his ministerial colleagues to do the same.

In a recent letter to other ministries, Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar has said that the “Prime Minister expects all his ministerial collegues to use the social media platform extensively to disseminate new initiatives of the government.”

                                    It's a cause of concern that women's safety finds no place in PM Shri Modi's ten point agenda, whereas the nation is shocked everyday with stories of horrifying atrocities and crimes on women.

                                      Modi Government decided to allow 100% foreign direct investment in defence. A great step forward for making India's defence secured. We all should congratulate this nationalist Government from our heart. What is the problem even if FDI is not allowed in retail but in defence?? Modi is known to be very friendly with China and is keen to run very good relationship with stan.

                                        Modi's fight against corruption has been strengthened with the induction of Sahara Group n Subroto Roy's lawyer loud mouthed n flared nostrils Ravi Shankar Prasad as the Minister for Law n Justice?
