Social Media Data Reveals Popularity Contest: PM Modi vs. Rahul Gandhi, BJP and Congress Analyze Trends

On Saturday, the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) got into a new argument. They were discussing who’s more liked between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. They used the number of people interacting with their social media accounts as a way to figure this out.

The Congress showed pictures from Sansad TV’s YouTube channel. They said that more people watched Rahul Gandhi’s speech in Parliament than watched PM Modi’s speech.

The Congress also shared information comparing the tweets of Rahul Gandhi and PM Modi. According to the Congress’s social media team, Rahul Gandhi’s last 30 tweets were seen by around 48.13 million people, while PM Modi’s last 30 tweets reached around 21.59 million people.

The Congress claimed that the data was collected and compared today.

The BJP promptly responded to the Congress’s statements, presenting their own data that depicted PM Modi as the clear leader when it came to engagement on social media platforms.

The BJP stated that PM Modi’s account on the platform X (formerly known as Twitter) had around 7.99 million interactions in the last month, while Rahul Gandhi’s account had around 2.34 million interactions.

The BJP shared that on Facebook, PM Modi’s account had about 5.79 million interactions in the last month, while Rahul Gandhi’s account had around 2.84 million interactions.

When comparing the Facebook account interactions for this year, PM Modi continued to lead in popularity, according to the BJP. They revealed that PM Modi’s Facebook account received around 32.5 million interactions this year, while Rahul Gandhi’s account received about 18.8 million interactions.

The BJP went a step further by disclosing the extent of viewership garnered by the YouTube channels belonging to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. By sharing this information, they aimed to provide a comprehensive overview of the reach and popularity of the content posted by these two prominent figures.

This move underscores the emphasis on transparency and data-driven insights, enabling the public to gain a clearer understanding of the level of engagement with the content produced by each leader. It also adds a layer of transparency to the ongoing discourse surrounding their social media presence and influence.


The BJP informed that in the last month, PM Modi’s channel received around 254.6 million views, whereas Rahul Gandhi’s channel received approximately 48.2 million views.

In the span of this year, up until now, PM Modi’s YouTube channel has captured a remarkable 757.9 million views, indicating a significant level of interest in his content. On the other hand, Rahul Gandhi’s YouTube account has managed to accumulate around 253.8 million views, reflecting a substantial but comparatively lower engagement with his videos. These figures spotlight the differing levels of attention that the two leaders are receiving on this popular video-sharing platform.

The Bharatiya Janata Party attached screenshots showing Instagram accounts of PM Modi and Rahul Gandhi.

The saffron party claimed that the screenshots “speak for themselves about viewership numbers”.
