The Lok Sabha Elections 2014 have been popularly called the 'social media elections'. Living up to the reputation of a 'modern leader', the Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, is using Twitter and other social media as a platform to connect with the people of the country and promote himself and his party.
In the ongoing seventh phase of the lok sabha elections, the whole of Gujarat is going to vote, along with 6 other states and 2 union territories. Modi voted this morning in the Gandhinagar parliamentary constituency, from where senior party leader LK Advani is contesting. He took a selfie after casting his vote, showing off his inked finger and BJP's symbol lotus. Modi also tweeted his selfie with the hashtag #SelfieWithModi.

This new Twitter trend created by the Modi camp uses the selfies of voters who hashtag #SelfieWithModi along with their inked-finger photos, to make a mosaic of Narendra Modi. The website says, “In this selfie season share yours with #SelfieWithModi and become part of this mosaic”. You can even find your selfie in the mosaic and locate your friends' who have shared theirs. “Together, lets become agents of change and lay the foundation of a strong and developed India” urges the website.
