Taking to Twitter on Sunday, PM Modi has handed it over to seven women achievers of the country who will share their life journeys through his accounts through the day. However, PM Modi did not disclose the names of the seven women achiever who would handle his social media account.

“Greetings on International Women’s Day! We salute the spirit and accomplishments of our Nari Shakti.  As I’d said a few days ago, I’m signing off. Through the day, seven women achievers will share their life journeys and perhaps interact with you through my social media accounts,” tweeted PM Modi.

The cryptic tweet sent people wondering what exactly could be the reason. Next day, PM Modi announced that he would be handing over his accounts on various social media platforms to inspiring women to mark International Women’s Day.

“This Women’s Day (March 8), I will give away my social media accounts to women whose life & work inspire us. This will help them ignite motivation in millions,” he had tweeted.
