India's Prime Minister's Narendra Modi on Monday night left tens of millions of his followers puzzled with a sudden announcement that he may soon quit social media, without offering a reason.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is often active on social media, on Monday took to Twitter to inform the country about his plan for going offline on social media.

PM Narendra Modi, however, said he is "thinking" about it and he is yet to take a final call on the matter. PM Narendra Modi said he is thinking to exit from all social media platforms that he is active on including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.

In a tweet, PM Narendra Modi said: "This Sunday, thinking of giving up my social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & YouTube. Will keep you all posted."

In two hours, PM Narendra Modi's post was liked by over 1 lakh users and retweeted over 65,000 times.

Reacting to the news, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi told PM Narendra Modi to give up "hatred" and "not social media".

"Give up hatred, not social media accounts," Rahul Gandhi tweeted.
