In terms of hashtags, #Vocalforlocal and #Vocalforlocalindia were the 2 most trending hashtags in India in Q3 2020. So what do these hashtags stand for? 

In his delivery of the seventh consecutive Independence Day speech, Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasized the need to use and promote local products. "The mindset of free India should be 'vocal for local'. We should appreciate our local products, if we don't do this then our products will not get the opportunity to do better and will not get encouraged", he stated. Hence, in support, Indian influencers have started adopting the hashtag #Vocalforlocal and #Vocalforlocalindia to show their appreciation for local brands.
