BJP to IT cell: Use so­cial me­dia to spot sup­port­ers

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

Noida: While the world de­bates and de­ci­phers how much in­flu­ence so­cial me­dia has on voter opin­ion, and even­tu­ally de­cid­ing poll, BJP gal­vanis­ing its IT cell in UP through four meet­ings in two months says a lot about what In­dia’s rul­ing party thinks.

The IT cell has been given a clear brief — counter any “false ac­cu­sa­tion” against PM Modi and UP CM Adityanath, iden­tify sup­port­ers of BJP, RSS and Hin­dutva on so­cial me­dia and in­vite them to vol­un­teer, and go af­ter SP-BSP. At a meet­ing in Noida on Satur­day, state BJP chief Ma­hen­dra Nath Pandey termed IT cell mem­bers of the party as “im­por­tant cy­ber sol­diers”.
