CM Naveen Patnaik said,”BJD has always been youth-centric. BJD has now planned to connect with youth through social media. It has taken a step to connect through FaceBook, Instagram and Twitter. Biju Chatra Janata Dal and BJD IT Cell were specially trained on how to increase the connectivity with youth through social media. In one way, Government’s scheme could be publicised and in another party will also bring an end to any false propaganda.”
It cannot be denied that social media has an extremely wide reach. BJD using it to publicise its programme is commendable step. And whether it would be beneficial to party or not will be known after General Election results will be out.
