BENGALURU: It is said to dream big, as one never know when it will come true. But Akash Jain, the young Bengaluru-based entrepreneur won’t have ever dreamt that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who hardly follows 1,700 people across the world, would become one of his followers on Twitter.
And all these happened because of one positive initiative Akash’s family took few days ago to put the “Swachh Bharat ” logo on the wedding card of his sister.
Akash took to his Twitter handle and posted the picture of his sister’s wedding card featuring the logo of Swachh Bharat, tagging Prime Minister Modi. After his post, a number of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders reposted his tweet, appreciating his effort.
But that was not all, a big surprise came to Akash when the Prime Minister himself retweeted his post and followed him back.

“The moment when your ‘Member of Parliament’ appreciates the initiative. Thanks a lot. Tweets do come true! Never thought that this will happen in real 🙂 Honoured to be followed back by Modiji,” tweeted Akash after the incident.
“My dad has been following an initiative of the Prime Minister Modi from long. When the wedding was planned he wanted to do something so he thought, why not use the weeding card as the medium to promote the clean India drive,” Akash told ANI.
Akash said that he just randomly shared the picture tagging the prime minister, but had never expected that he would retweet it and follow him back.
“One of the most followed person, follows me. Nothing can be much bigger than this,” he said.
The Swachh Bharat campaign was launched on October 2, 2014 on the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi as an initiative to make India clean.
