💢DELETE WHATSAPP💢Analysis by Merofact Awareness Team:
Today our PM Modi ji spoke a slogan of Made In India.
Come lets start with using TELEGRAM an Indian app instead of using the American app WhatsApp.
🔹It is the first Indian social media app.
Think about it...Even the Chinese have refused WhatsApp and adopted the Made in China "WeChat", when we are going to start??
Use Whatsapp for one year & stop it!
Its one year cost is 56 Rupees, and In India there are 20crore Indians....
If we use WhatsApp then 20crore × 56rupees=1120crore rupees will go outside India, to create awareness please send this msg to everyone & download TELEGRAM.
🔘TELEGRAM has more functions then WhatsApp:-
🔸It can send 50MB video
🔸It can even send Word, Excel & Adobe files
🔸In a group, 200 people can be added
🔸It is free of cost, no charges at all
🔸The most important thing, it works same as WhatsApp & the interface is also like Whatsapp only..
So today onwards use 💢TELEGRAM💢
🇮🇳(Telegram) is Indian🇮🇳

Watch in today Times of India newspaper. Page 7.
Telegram is a company started by 2 russian brothers and having its headquarter in Berlin, Germany. See the Telegram FAQ webpage which says "Telegram is supported by Pavel and Nikolai Durov. Pavel supports Telegram financially and ideologically, while Nikolai's input is technological. To make Telegram possible, Nikolai developed a unique custom data protocol, which is open, secure and optimized for work with multiple data-centers. As a result, Telegram combines security, reliability and speed on any network.
While the Durov brothers were born in Russia, as were some of the key developers, Telegram is not connected to Russia – legally or physically. Telegram's HQ is in Berlin."
So the idea that Telegram is an Indian venture promoted by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is utterly false. It is difficult to understand the motive behind this campaign associating with Modi's "Make in India" campaign.
