Social media played vital role in Narendra Modi's surge: Prabhu
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Sunday stressed on the use of social media, and said that it played a vital role for Narendra Modi to win elections and become the prime minister. He said that it was an important tool in bringing good governance and a good government.

He was speaking at the inauguration of the day-long conclave on ‘Democracy, Good Governance and Social Media,’ organised by Federation of Karnataka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FKCCI) in the City. He said that social media has brought a huge change among Indians and they have used it to their advantage.

The various platforms of social media helped Modi have a direct connect with various people which was the reason why he was able to win the elections. It has also created opportunities for many politicians to know what people want and build direct contact with them, he said.

Prabhu emphasised on good governance and said that a government is elected for governance. Governance is a software which drives the government. It is fundamental and we must focus on it. This has been Modi’s mantra and for all other ministers as well.
Sudhan, a law student, said that the government should come up with a social media application, like Facebook and Twitter to have a bigger reach among people.
