"I have been closely observing how your content has been influencing the citizens of our nation for years," he conveyed to approximately 5,000 creators during his YouTube address.
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the YouTube Fanfest India 2023 on Wednesday, emphasizing that he is “no different” from the 5,000 content creators in attendance and considers himself a fellow YouTuber. During his YouTube address, PM Modi expressed his immense happiness at being part of the community and mentioned that he has been closely observing how their content influences the people of our nation.
“For the past 15 years, I too have been connected to the country and the world through a YouTube channel. I also have a substantial number of subscribers,” said PM Modi, who currently boasts 17.9 million subscribers.
He further noted, “Together, we have the potential to bring about transformative changes in the lives of a vast population in our country.”
The prime minister shared that among the thousands of videos on his channel, the most fulfilling experiences for him have been when he engaged with students on subjects like managing exam stress, expectations, and productivity.
During his brief five-minute address, PM Modi touched upon various initiatives, including “Swachh Bharat,” digital payments, and the “Vocal for Local” campaign. He urged YouTubers to inspire more individuals to participate in these initiatives.
PM Modi encouraged content creators to make emotional appeals, emphasizing the importance of supporting products that embody the essence of India, such as Khadi, handicrafts, and handloom items. He called on YouTubers to initiate a movement and awaken the nation in this regard.
In addition, he suggested that content creators conclude their episodes with questions or action points to engage their audience actively. By doing so, he believes that their popularity will grow, and people will not only listen but also actively participate.
Concluding his address, the prime minister humorously remarked, “Subscribe to my channel and hit the bell icon to receive all my updates.”
