New Delhi, June 28: A day after Narendra Modi's move of unveiling BJP agenda to win 2014 elections, Congress too seems to have begun following his path. Congress MP Priya Dutt on Friday, June 28 said that the party would start working on strengthening its power through social media.
Political parties and leaders have been using social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Google Plus and many more to reach to the aam aadmi (common man). The Gujarat Chief Minister is one among those tech-savvy political leaders who have been using medium as a weapon to spread their words.
Modi on Thursday visited Mumbai and unveiled BJP's 5 point agenda and social media has been given the first priority. The mantras of the Gujarat CM are --
- Getting the social media addresses of 1 lakh persons from all 48 Lok Sabha constituencies,
- Rejuvenating the party organization,
- Strengthening the block level party network,
- Reaching out to the voters through a comprehensive plan and on top of it weed out factionalism.
Now, a day after Modi's Mumbai visit, Priya Dutt reached Madhya Pradesh where she met senior state party leaders. During her meeting, Dutt said Congress would work on three criteria -- social media, research and communication.
Congress and BJP have begun their mission 2014 and it seems that both parties have aimed to woo the countrymen, especially the youth through social media.
