Today’s time is the time of streaming everything online rather than switching on the TV to watch whatever is being aired, leaving no choice to explore and for the same reason our political parties have also started exploring the options available to them other than TV. In the last ten years, YouTube has well-marked its presence as the most popular online video sharing platform where people watch 5 billion videos daily and over 400 hours of videos are getting uploaded every minute, making YouTube the world’s biggest source of video content. With more than 77 % of the videos viewed on mobile devices and with such popularity of YouTube, political parties have also opted for the YouTube route and have created their Channels on the Platform.

YouTube has reached around 80% of the Indian population, and according to Statista statistics, India stands at 5th position in the world with 45 million monthly active users. One of the main reason for the immense popularity of YouTube is its fresh content which is uploaded every single minute, and people get all the relevant information of their interest in any language on one single online space.

Being the world’s second largest search engine, YouTube is the best medium to promote and boost the content and make it reach the targeted audience in the fastest way. This is the reason why political parties have created their YouTube channels to provide their official content, live stream and provide insights into their parties and mark an influence in the minds of millions of viewers. YouTube which thankfully works 24×7 offers a medium for Political parties to upload any of their content at any time of the day, which on the other hand would have taken more than a day to reach the audience. In India, most of the major parties do have their own official YouTube channels leaving some like BSP who do not have their official Channel. Also, there are many fake channels with the name of major political parties making the process to find one a bit hard. To clear some clutter, we have prepared a list of official channels of Political Parties in India based on subscribers and popularity on YouTube.
