Breaking the political stereotype, Priyanka Gandhi puts Twitter profile picture in jeans

A day after posting her first tweet, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has yet again garnered nation’s attention towards her Twitter account, and this time by changing her profile picture.

We see most of the politicians presenting themselves in the usual political look with men wearing white Kurtas clubbing it with Nehru jacket ad women mostly in sobre saaree. However, breaking the political stereotype, Priyanka Gandhi changed her profile picture and presented herself in jeans.

Yesterday, Gandhi, a newly minted general secretary of India’s primary opposition party, the Congress—and the sister of its president, Rahul Gandhi—posted her inaugural tweets soon after delivering her first speech for the outfit.

Her tweets, which referenced Mahatma Gandhi, were likely a nod to the fact that she was speaking in Gujarat, the home state of the iconic figure of Indian independence.

 


The tweets were a safe choice, likely vetted by digital communications staff, as the microblogging platform has far-reaching impact among the country’s tech-savvy young voters.
