Twitter has a field day after PM Modi appears on Jio advertisement

NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, among many others, on Friday mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi after his photo appeared in the company’s advertisements. Reliance, through its ads, dedicated the Jio 4G service to the Modi government’s flagship ‘Digital India’ project.

Modi endorses Reliance’s Jio & in return Reliance’s Network18 endorses Modi with a puffy interview. All in a day!


While some important issues were raised, like if it was even legal for the Prime Minister to endorse a product, and whether he could face imprisonment if Jio didn’t deliver as promised as per the new draft law, Twitter did not miss the opportunity to poke some fun at it..

If JIO fails to deliver, brand ambassador Modi can be jailed for up to 5 years & face a fine of Rs 50 lakh under a new draft law!@AnkitLal


Well, you do know that “I’m Jio’d” is an anagram of Modi-ji.


Narendra Modi is endorsing Reliance Jio.
Makes sense for the PM to endorse a brand.
Especially for him: since Roaming is free.


Idea – Abhishek Bachchan
Airtel – 4G girl
Vodafone – Kutta

Jio – Modi


मेरा बचपन चाय बेचनेमे ओर जवानी नागपुर वाली फेक्टरी मे गुजर गइ. बुढापा मे छोटे भाइ ने Jio के सिम बेचने का काम दे दीया😭


An employer hired the best Chowkidar in the country to protect Jio from data corruption.(2016)


 – Expecting Harpic’s new ad with a toilet on cover page and Modi ji saying “In support of Swacch Bharat” 😁


Narendra Modi’s Pic in Reliance Jio Ad is Tricky debate. Companies can’t use PM’s Pic for Promotion – but they can use their employee’s pic


It will be interesting to watch which TV editor will have guts to run Modi doing endorsement for Reliance today.


So if that celebrity endorsement law passes, you should presumably be able to arrest Modi ji should Jio not live up to its speed claims?


.@PMOIndia After 75 GB is up will it automatically downgrade to 3G or Edge? Pls have a rep call me. Thanks.


Can’t wait for Modiji’s voice to tell me “Mitroṅ, aapka dial kiya gaya number is waqt kisi anya call par vyast hai”


Other telecoms: Mere paas ideas hain, employees hain, capital hai..
Jio: Mere paas PM hai

Although, this move by the Reliance Group was not authorised by the Prime Minister’s Office, as reported by OpIndia, there was no stopping the Twitter trolls.
