Wants social media team to be more active

By Rajan Raikwar

State Congress President Kamal Nath is seemingly unsatisfied with the present performance of social media team of party and wants that it should be more aggressive in attacking ruling party BJP and its Government in State and in spreading party’s ideology. Now, it is being fathomed that in coming time, Congress social media cell would be working in more efficient manner.

Highly placed sources in Congress told ‘The Hitavada’ that during the meeting of social media cell held on Wednesday, Kamal Nath pointed out that as far as social media is concerned then Congress is leading only on twitter and its performance is not up to the mark as far as other social media platforms such as face book are concerned. Hence, social media team needs to be more active and more aggressive in attacking and exposing the BJP.

Congress insiders told that now Congress is going to do strict monitoring of its social media cell and its activities. Media Co-ordinator Narendra Saluja and media in charge Shobha Ojha will monitor and improve social media cell of party. “We want that party should be more visible on facebook,” said Congress sources.

The meeting of social media cell was attended by Kamal Nath, Congress Spokesperson Shobha Ojha and other concerned leaders of Congress. As far as social media platform is concerned then both BJP and Congress accepts that social media plays an important role in leaving a mark on the mindset of voters. Social media plays significant role in results of coming Assembly elections. Therefore, both parties want to use social media in big way.

BJP IT Cell’s State Co-ordinator Shivraj Singh Dabi told ‘The Hitavada’ that Congress is trying to strengthen its social media team when only three months are left for assembly elections. In such a short span, it is not going to achieve anything. Social media preparations needs at least time of one year. On the contrary, BJP social media team is working from last two years that also in extensive manner. Now, BJP’s social media team has reached till village and booth-level.
