New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s videos are getting a lot of dislikes on YouTube as the students are feeling agitated due to the fact that he didn’t talk about the postponement of examinations in his recent radio programme of ‘Man Ki Baat’.
PM Narendra Modi addressed the third summit of US-Indian Strategic and Partnership Forum (USISPF) on Thursday. He said that everyone’s lives were largely impacted by the global pandemic. He also said that this situation is testing everyone’s strength, the public system and the economic system of a country.
The video was uploaded on the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) YouTube channel, but as soon as it was on the internet, it started to get a lot of dislikes. Currently, the video has 112k dislikes just after 20 hours of being uploaded.
After the incident, another video of PM’s interaction with Indian Police Service (IPS) Probationers was flooded with a huge number of dislikes even before the video was uploaded. So, the BJP took a major step and disabled the comments and likes/dislikes section in the channel.
It was noted that most of the comments were from the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) aspirants along with the candidates who are preparing for government jobs. The delay in the results, process of recruitment, notifications and the late issuance of admit cards have left the students infuriated.
A Twitter user pointed out this step and slammed BJP for disabling the comments, likes and dislikes in the video. A Twitter user named ROFL Gandhi 2.0 uploaded a screenshot of the screen and wrote, “PM sir is interacting with IPS probationers, like & chat disabled on BJP India, PMO & Narendra Modi youtube channels. There were 67k dislikes even before the beginning of the event, @BJP4India anticipated worse and disabled interactive features of an interaction event. Sensible.”

However, this is not the first time when PM Modi’s video got flooded with dislikes. His videos on his monthly radio address to the nation ‘Mann Ki Baat‘ also got detest. The students across the country on Sunday, expected that Modi would address students regarding the NEET and JEE exams, which is the issue of concern across the country, in his monthly radio address. Instead, he preferred to discuss dog breeds and toys which ruffled the students.
After the episode ended, ##Mann_Ki_Nahi_Students_Ki_Baat was trending on Twitter and people asked why PM chose not to speak regarding the postponement of the exams.
