New Delhi: Mayawati, known for her aversion to social media, has opened a Twitter account, the Bahujan Samaj Party announced on February 6.
Party sources suggested the move, for which one of the stated reasons was her need to express her views on “national political developments”, owed at least partly to Mayawati’s prime ministerial ambitions.
Mayawati apparently feels she needs to widen her reach beyond her regional vote bank to the youth at large and English speakers, and come across as a modern-age politician.
“She is ready to change with the times to take on the social media-savvy Prime Minister, Narendra Modi,” a senior BSP politician said, asking not to be quoted.
