PM Narendra Modi reveals what keeps him stress-free despite hectic work schedule

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is known to be an extremely workaholic person and a hard taskmaster among his peers and critics. He reportedly works for nearly 18 hours a day, sleeps on planes rather than 5 star hotels during long-haul flights abroad so that he can "save time" and keeps himself updated.

While a lot of us crib about our  routine  work-related stress, PM Narendra Modi does not find his job stressful

Just recently, PM himself explained what keeps him going after a Twitter user - Neetu Garg - recently posted a picture detailing Narendra Modi's gruelling daily schedule. 

"While we are busy cribbing about our work stress," Garg wrote in a caption accompanying the picture, "Just have a look (at) our PM's schedule which is just another day for him!" 

Interestingly, Garg's tweet was noticed by PM Modi, who replied, "How can working for 125 crore Indians be stressful? It is very satisfying."

The day being referred to was Monday, April 10, which included a meeting with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, a ride on the Delhi metro, inaugurating an exhibition that was part of the Swachh Bharat initiative and a meeting with NDA leaders that went on till midnight. 

In most of his speeches, PM Modi has referred s to himself as "Pradhan Sevak" instead of "Pradhan Mantri." 

He first called himself "Pradhan Sevak" in August 2014 in his first Independence Day speech as Prime Minister. 

"My beloved countrymen, I have come here not as a "Pradhan Mantri" but a "Pradhan Sevak," he announced from the ramparts of the Red Fort.
 
With nearly 29 million followers, PM Modi is the most followed world leader on Twitter.
