The 2014 Lok Sabha elections were as much an event online as they were on the parliamentary battle grounds. And the winning candidate BJP's Narendra Modi employed every available resource to reach out to as many friends and followers he could. One of the few Indian politicians to make complete use of the social media platforms such as Twitter, Modi was already better connected with his audience, that eventually ensured his unprecedented victory.

But in a rather rare move for a designate prime minister, Modi sent out personalised 'Thank you' greetings to the many national leader that sent him congratulatory messages on Twitter.

 

Interestingly, he did not limit his courtesies to simply his friends and allies but also extended them to those rivals who otherwise his most severe critics.

 He even went on to thank the world leaders who wished him such as the Canadian prime minister Harper, British prime minister David Cameron and Australia's recently elected Tony Abott

He even added that he had sent direct and private messages to many others. 

While many debate the fate of the nation under Modi's leadership, this move is definitely seen as a positive step forward towards political diplomacy.
