Twitter – @AamAadmiParty has the most active followers, @BJP4India the most fake followers


While Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi and Arvind Kejriwal are locked in a bitter battle as the icons of their respective parties, end of the day, political parties and their local candidates will have to fight it out. Trends in Social Media, which is dominated by urban youth, are a good indicator of how individual parties are doing in urban areas from the popularity standpoint. We are presenting the second installment (Click here for Part 1) of our study of Twitter account of the 3 most talked about parties in 2014 election – Aam Aadmi Party, Bharatiya Janata Party and Indian National Congress.

The tool used to generate the following statistics is Truth Of Gujarat’s in house tool called twfollowers. It is an open source tool and our viewers are most welcome to review the source code to find any fallacies.

The numbers in first three tables are indicators of how much fake following does a twitter account have. Higher the percentages, more the number of fake followers. BJP’s twitter account – BJP4India has the highest percentages in ALL the columns indicating a high percentage of fake following. On the other hand, Congress’s twitter account, WithCongress, has the smallest percentages and seems to have the most genuine following, but they seriously lack in numbers which shows their complete lack of popularity among the urban youth. AAP’s twitter account, AamAadmiParty, has grown the fastest in the last 2 months from 244,053 followers in first week of December to 516000 followers now.

    Express News Service | Ahmedabad | February 18, 2014 6:47 am
    Phot of Justice Suresh not printed.
    Justice Suresh terms the campaign of Gujarat’s development as “fiction” in the book.
    The author terms the campaign of Gujarat’s development as “fiction” in the book.
    Justice Hosbet Suresh, former Judge of Bombay High Court Monday said that CM Narendra Modi was the main conspirator of the 2002 Gujarat riots and was not a suitable candidate as Prime Minister of India.
    Justice Suresh, one of the members of Concerned Citizens’ Tribunal that probed into the 2002 Gujarat riots and prepared a report, was speaking at the launch of a book in the city. Justice Suresh added that it would be dangerous for the country to have Modi as PM. Turning down the clean chit given to Modi by a magisterial court, Justice Suresh also said that there were many evidences against Modi and the issue was still to be adjudicated by the High Court and Supreme Court. “Supreme Court has not given him a clean chit,” he said.
    Justice Suresh, who was in the city for the release of Sachchai Gujarat Ki, written by professor of an arts college in Ahmedabad, Hemantkumar Shah. The author terms the campaign of Gujarat’s development as “fiction” in the book. Justice Suresh said that as a member of the Concerned Citizens’ Tribunal, he — along with former Supreme Court judges V Krishna Iyer and P B Sawant — had toured Gujarat extensively for 15 days after 2002 riots. Justice Iyer, who chaired the tribunal, has given testimonials to Modi.
    “Modi was the main conspirator of Gujarat riots,” Justice Suresh said.
    “What happened in Best Bakery case? All the accused were acquitted by the trial court. But the same case got transferred to Maharashtra and the accused got convicted,” Justice Suresh said. “He is like Hitler. What happened after Hitler came to power? World War broke out. I do not rule out the possibility of (something) similar if he becomes the PM.”
    Referring to the conviction of Maya Kodnani in the 2002 Naroda Patiya massacre and Modi’s complicity in the riots, he said, “Whose person is Kodnani? Modi’s.”
    Comments of Dr.R.K.D.Goel: -Comments: 17.02.2014
    Wait only for 2014 results of Parliament elections. If the BJP get majority and make Modi to PM of India, it will be disaster for India. No one rule out war with Pakistan.
    Read daily the Islamic Pakistan ISI trained terrorists are giving threats to kill Saffron Parivar members as they demolished the Babri Masjid in 1992 under the leadership of Mr. L.K.Advani.

    Now the Islamic terrorist gave threats to kill Modi if he will be BJP Prime Minister of India in 2014.

    What happened in Patna on 27.10.2013 in the rally of Mr. Narendra Modi? Six people died due to Bomb Blasts in Patna of which the responsibility are taken by the Islamic Mujahedin’s in Patna to take revenge of 1992 / 2002 riots against the Muslims in India.

    What happened in Muzaffarnagar in September 2013, riots against Muslims on a very pity matter? There were no major riots in Western UP before 1947 and after 1947 partition of India.

    There was very good harmony between Hindus – Jats and Muslims in western UP except some small riots those were controlled in a day.

    Now the saffron parivar 1992 when the Babri Masjid was demolished under Mr. L.K.Advani and BJP came in power under Mr. A.B.Vajpayee who was having collaboration Center government with NDA partners.

    Now Muslim youths are recruited by Islamic Jihad’s to do riots in India, which again the saffron Parivar want under Mr. Raj Nath Singh a BJP president and Mr. Narendra Modi as convenor of 2014 Parliament elections.
    All powers are now with Modi to whom too give BJP tickets or to whom refused the BJP MP tickets in India. Mr. Narendra Modi has all the powers of BJP now with RSS backing to him.
    Wait only for few months. Now Hindu youths of India are with Modi to see him PM of India in 2014 to give a lesson to Pakistan and to remove Islamic terrorists from India, which is not possible as Mr. A.B.Vajpayee also failed to have normal relations with Pakistan from 1998 to 2004 with Kargil war in 1999 with Pakistan.
    See how many Bomb Blasts in India from 1992 to 2o14? Killing more than 4000 innocent people in India (Only in 2008) from 2004 to 2014 only by Bomb Blasts of Islamic Jihad’s.
    Hope Modi will make India terrorist free as Indian Hindu youths are with him.
    All saying there will be disaster, if Mr. Narendra Modi will be BJP Prime Minister of India in 2014.

    Pray to God to maintain peace in India after 2014 Parliament elections.
