Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi may soon try his hand at podcasting to counter Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s monthly radio program Mann Ki Baat. This information has been given by people familiar with this step.
The Congress leader, who did not name, said, “We are in the planning stage right now and are discussing fine points with the experts and asking them how to go about it.” A podcast is an audio message or discussion that is digitally transferred.

Gandhi’s interaction with migrant workers was watched by 752,000 spectators. Health expert Professor Ashish Jha and his video conversation with Professor Johan Gieseke on Corona virus received more than 90,000 views.
Prime Minister Modi’s YouTube channel has 6.45 million subscribers. He has 57.9 million followers on Twitter and 45 million on Facebook. Talking about Rahul Gandhi, he has 14.4 million followers on Twitter and 3.2 million on Facebook.
A Congress leader said, “We are also looking at other platforms like LinkedIn.” He claimed that the party’s social media campaigns had received a good response from the public during the lockdown implemented due to Corona virus.
The Congress leader said, ‘On May 28, our’ Speak Up India ‘online campaign was a big hit. Over 5.7 million party leaders and activists uploaded their messages on various social media platforms throughout the day. ‘
A day-long campaign was launched to pressurize the central government to accept demands for immediate financial assistance to farmers, migrant workers, daily wage earners and small businesses affected by the epidemic.
