Number of photographs of Mamata Banerjee on the home page of the party she heads, Trinamool Congress. A similar count of pictures of party leaders across India on the home page of their respective websites shows the cult of the individual is more powerful around regional satraps. J. Jayalalitha appears 20 times on the AIADMK website, Naveen Patnaik 15 times on the Biju Janata Dal website and Mulayam Singh Yadav seven times on the Samajwadi Party website. By comparison, Narendra Modi appears four times on the BJP home page, Rahul Gandhi once on the Congress Party home page and Arvind Kejriwal of the Aam Aadmi Party once.
