‘Best tweet of bootlicking’: Anand Mahindra’s Tweet on PM Modi’s Bandipur Tiger Reserve visit receives backlash

Indian industrialist Anand Mahindra tweeted a picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi from the Bandipur Tiger Reserve on Sunday, where the Prime Minister went on a wildlife safari. However, Mahindra’s tweet, which was accompanied by the caption “No prizes for guessing why I think this is the best pic from the PM’s visit to Bandipur,” received a backlash on social media.

While some social media users have praised the picture and the Prime Minister’s visit, many others have accused Mahindra of being a cheerleader of the government. Several users have called out Mahindra for what they see as blatant bootlicking of the Prime Minister.

One user said, “No prizes for guessing why I think this is the best tweet of bootlicking.” Another user wrote, “One of the best ways to avoid ED raid is to praise the Lord.”

Some users have also criticized the Prime Minister’s visit to the tiger reserve, which they say was paid for by taxpayers’ money. One user said, “Here’s the problem: PM visits election states and the taxpayer pays for it. Ideally, it should be borne by the party, and those days (or hours) spent in campaigning should be marked as absent on the PM’s roster. It’s only fair.”

Other users have taken issue with the idea of industrialists like Anand Mahindra openly praising politicians. One user said, “Businessmen are also crawling like media. Spineless creature.” Another user wrote, “No price for guessing even all the money in the world can’t buy one spine. Courage and truth have nothing to do with money.”

The Prime Minister’s visit to Bandipur Tiger Reserve was part of his election campaign for the upcoming state elections. The visit was aimed at highlighting the BJP’s commitment to wildlife conservation and promoting tourism in the state.

While the controversy over Anand Mahindra’s tweet has generated a lot of discussion on social media, it remains to be seen how it will impact the upcoming elections in the state.
