New Delhi, Sep 20, 2017: In a bid to leave no stone unturned to win the battle of crucial Gujarat elections, Congress party has launched a social media bombardment plan which is going to triggered much interest in its initial days.
From issue-based campaigns on Facebook and Whatsapp to a series of first-hand stories by ‘citizen reporters’, the party’s social media team is on an overdrive to trump PM Narendra Modi’s formidable social media army.
The party has made at least 20 Facebook pages – official and surrogate – such as Congress ni vikas gatha, Why Only Congress Can Run India, Bhajap No Vikas Gando Thayo Che, Bluffmaster Modi, Feku Man, Can BJP Run India, Vyapari Virodhi Modi and Patidar Virodhi Modi for the purpose.
Gujarat IT cell chief Rohan Gupta told Mail Today that “This time we will go big with our social media campaign in the Assembly polls. We have seen much support in the first few days itself. Our biggest hit so far is the ‘janta ka reporter’ series where the common man reports on ground realities in the state,” .
“The BJP government made tall promises and delivered nothing on ground. Our volunteers and general people send us videos and pictures highlighting their plight – from civic issues to daily concerns,” Gupta added.
