Nagpur: In view of the 2024 general election, the Congress party has now decided to focus on the area where it feels it is lagging behind its rival BJP.
The Social Media Department of the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) will organize State and National ‘Navasankalp Social Media Camps’ in the city on Saturday and Sunday to train officials in effective management of various platforms. Experts and experienced journalists will guide more than 500 participants, who will attend the camp from across the state and nation.
Maharashtra Congress social media department chairman Vishal Muttemwar has said the big old party is preparing to do battle with the BJP ahead of the 2024 elections in the growing world of social media. He said the saffron party was ahead in using social media against its rivals and Congress was slow to realize it.
Muttemwar, who was accompanied by MLC Abhijit Wanjari, said, “The election season will start from the next local elections in the state. Therefore, we are preparing to use social media to promote party works. All parties are now increasingly adopting social media to reach voters. Platforms like Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram have become a new way to reach people.
Accusing the BJP of spreading false information about Congress leaders and their history on social media, the son of former minister Vilas Muttemwar said his party will now counter such slanderous tactics in the same vein. “For any party, it is important to gain people’s trust. Social media is an ideal platform to reach them. We will counter the rival’s false stories on social media by showing the truth,” he said.
The event is organized following discussions in the party’s Chintan Shivir in Rajasthan, where it was decided to counter the BJP on all platforms ahead of the 2024 elections. The two sides will also finalize the strategy to fight against all upcoming elections and to reach the maximum number of voters.
Citing a survey, Muttemwar said that 43% of the country’s population uses the internet and Maharashtra has the largest share. Among these Internet users, 60% of citizens spend at least two hours a day on social media platforms.
Many national and state leaders will participate in the event on both days. MPCC President Nana Patole will inaugurate Vanamati State Camp on Saturday. Members of the assembly office and the zilla parishad and representatives of the public will attend.
The national camp will see the presence of former minister Jairam Ramesh, spokespersons Pawan Khera and Alka Lamba, social media manager Rohan Gupta, adviser Sachin Rao and others.
