ITANAGAR, Jun 8: Chief Minister Pema Khandu has reiterated his call to BJP ministers, parliamentary secretaries, MLAs and party workers to be active on social media and reach out to the people.
“Social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and even WhatsApp can be utilized to the optimum to create awareness on the government’s policies and programmes and highlight the government’s achievements,” Pema said during a workshop on social media organized by the state BJP’s IT cell here on Friday.
He said the people in the government and the party can use social media to receive feedbacks from the people and improve their performances.
“Today everyone is on one or the other social media platform, and these platforms have become the best and the strongest mediums of communicating with the people,” the CM said.
“The best part of social media for us is that we can show to the people what we are doing, what we have done, and what we want to do, in real time,” he said.
Pema, who is himself very active on Facebook and Twitter, urged his colleagues and party workers to get themselves acquainted with the latest app, called the Narendra Modi or NaMo app, download it, and use it.
The party’s social media and IT convenor Vijay Sonam earlier explained the nuances of Facebook and Twitter, and urged party workers to become active and reach out to the people for the party to grow stronger in the state.
