Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has started following some senior Congress leaders on Twitter. He began following P Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal, Ahmed Patel, Ashok Gehlot, Ajay Maken, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sachin Pilot and CP Joshi from this month. Amitabh already followed Congress president Rahul Gandhi and the party’s official Twitter handle.
The list not yet ends up here as he also followed Manish Tewari, Shakeel Ahmed, Sanjay Nirupam, Randeep Surjewala Priyanka Chaturvedi and Sanjay Jha on Twitter.
Manish Tewari posted a gratitude message, “Thank you Sh Amitabh Bachan for following me and it is my privilege to follow the icon of Indian cinema who we grew up watching first-day first-show every new release. Those days in late 70’s & early 80’s a balcony ticket in Chandigarh was Rs 3. Unbelievable today! @SrBachchan.”
Amitabh and Congress: An Ended Love Story
In 1984, Amitabh contested Allahabad’s seat of 8th Lok Sabha against H. N. Bahuguna, former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and won by one of the highest victory margins in general election history. He resigned after 3 years.
