The move of the LDF to disrupt the mass contact programme of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy is anti-constitutional, said AICC general secretary Mukul Wasnik, who is in charge of the state.
He was speaking at the national workshop on ‘social media’ organised by the IT Cell of Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee here on Thursday.
‘’The Opposition is showing a negative approach in the state. Congress workers should make effective use of social media as a campaigning tool in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. The public should get to know of the Congress’ stand on public issues through social media. But it should be ensured that the information transmitted is factual and true,’’ Wasnik said.
KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala said Gujarat Chief Minister and the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi was using social media to prop up his image with the help of corporates. Attempts to create a negative picture of the Congress should be countered through social media, he said.
Selected representatives from various districts took part in the workshop. Union Minister of State for Labour and Employment Kodikkunnil Suresh, KPCC vice-president M M Hassan, V D Satheesan MLA, spokespersons Pandalam Sudhakaran, Rajmohan Unnithan also spoke on the occasion.
Meanwhile, the Chief Minister evaded direct answers to an array of questions on bringing him and his office under the purview of the judicial probe into the solar scam.
Chandy reiterated that the fraudsters involved in duping prospective customers of solar energy products had received no help from him. The public exchequer had not suffered any loss in the scam either, he said.
