TJAC activists are using Facebook live option with strong criticism against Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and his family members on several issues. A TJAC activist told Express that everyone has a separate group and more than 5,000 people share their posts through facebook and this will help them popularise Samajika Telangana slogan, the ultimate aim of TJAC. Some activists said traditional media only provides place to a few leaders to express their views on organisational activities. But Facebook and Whatsapp helps them to convey their opinion even to the illiterates on several issues.


 Meanwhile, TJAC representatives used its chairman M Kodandaram’s phone for live coverage but it was misplaced during the Yatra. TJAC activists noticed that the phone was missing at Bhiknoor police station but they did not lodge a complaint.TJAC leaders said the phone is missing regularly after live coverage in organisational activities. “After internal inquiries we will lodge a complaint on this issue,” a leader said.
