Ok on my first night will tirst empower the women. bring in more transparency ien the system in more youths RAHUL GANDHI WEEKLY COMMENTS Arvind Kejriwal: Even though he is in the news often, majority of the hot topics and hot hash tags and hot posted images are related to negative news. His branding going by volume of tweets is good, but brand- ing via positive news is still low. This type of mixed branding will continue till there is a change in the way he projects himself. Making allegations against opponents helps initially, but using the same tactic repeatedly will influence the voters to move away from him. Narendra Modi: The positive support is stable and is high on the days he addresses rallies. However the positive support does not increase much on the days of his rallies. If his rallies can gather higher positive sup- port on social media, it will help in gaining more undecided voters and fence sitters, specially the urban voters where the Arvind Kejriwal led AAP can play spoilsport. Another key area to look at are his key influence users. All of them are media channels. It is important to have at least 2 key influence users from within the party in order to clarify quickly any misinterpretations/allegations made by the media. Allowing the media to have the monopoly of influencing will have a negative impact. Rahul Gandhi: The branding is weak by comparison while his opponents are social media friendly. His last month interview with a television channel is still a hot topic. Old news still trending indicates lack of new news related to him. The most retweeted tweets all are relat- ed to the same subject. This shows the lack of new diverse ideas. He has to be more active and not just say he wants to change the system but focus on how he is going to do it, since he does not have any experience in governing a state like Narendra Modi. Oth- erwise he will not be seen as a youth-icon but the 63 year old Modi will be. by Observer NS The views and opinions expressed herein are those of the author(s) and do not represent the views and opinions of the National University of Singapore or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates.
