PM Modi Twitter : The White House has unfollowed Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Ram Nath Kovind, and the Prime Minister’s office.
The rare move by White House to follow PM Modi on April 10 was viewed as a reflection of the bonhomie and good rapport shared by the Prime Minister and US President Donald Trump.
Their last interaction was over the export of hydroxychloroquine, which the US wanted for its fight against coronavirus.
“Extraordinary times require even closer cooperation between friends. Thank you, India, and the Indian people for the decision on HCQ. Will not be forgotten! Thank you Prime Minister @NarendraModi for your strong leadership in helping not just India, but humanity, in this fight!”, the US President had tweeted.
The White House handle followed PM Modi Twitter and other Indian accounts two days later.
Among those on Twitter who wondered about the White House’s move was Congress’s Gaurav Pandhi, a member of the party’s social media cell. “Why has White House unfollowed Prime Minister and President of India on Twitter,” he asked in several posts.
