When PM Modi made his appearance on Man vs Wild show, several people trended #PMModiOnDiscovery. In less than 12 hours since the tweet first made an appearance, the hashtag had reached 728 million people through over 204.2K mentions by more than 206.2K users, as per data from global media intelligence firm Meltwater.
When the show was announced, the Left had a collective meltdown in an effort to dehumanise PM Modi. Congress had also resorted to peddling lies saying that PM Modi had shot for this show while the Pulwama terror attack had happened. The Left had also peddled lies that PM Modi was a ‘climate change denier’ by malicious tweeting an edited video.
