Hyderabad, March 20: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President Capt. N. Uttam Kumar Reddy has directed the party workers to focus on utilising social media to expose the failures of TRS government.
Addressing a workshop on Social Media organised by Telangana Youth Congress here today, he said that the TRS government has been pressurising the mainstream media from exposing its failures.
He alleged that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao has been trying several means to prevent Congress leaders from getting deserved coverage in the mainstream media. Therefore, the Congress workers should concentrate on exploring the social media to spread the party’s message to the people.
The Congress leader said due to the efforts of previous Congress governments, Telangana has a good penetration of internet across the state. Further, the number of smart phone users connected to Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter are significantly higher compared to other states. Therefore, he said that the Congress workers should not depend solely on mainstream media and use the social media Networking tools to expose the failures of TRS government at their levels.
However, he advised them to crosscheck any information before sharing it on social media. He said besides sharing the news clippings of print media, video-clippings of speeches by senior leaders and digital posters, the Congress workers should share information related to the difficulties being faced by the people in their areas.
