SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS

Did Jairam Ramesh hit the Bulls Eye?

The BJP might have earned applaud from all across sans handful opposition leaders over abrogation of Article 370 & 35A, but current economic slowdown with GDP @ 5 % appears to be the point on which opposition can take on BJP.


Taking a cue, Jairam Ramesh took a lead in social media when he tweeted that “Ever know what NITI in Niti Ayog stands for? It’s clearly Not In Touch With India”.

 

In a select gathering of retired bureaucrats, his pot-shot at NITI Aayog had become the center of discussion. A former Secretary of a key department observed that when the opposition leaders are clueless over how to make their criticism correct, sharp and acceptable to the masses, Ramesh’s Tweet seems to have hit bulls eye as it was well received in social media. Another retired civil servant observed that most of the opposition leaders have lost their credibility whereas a few still remain acceptable and authentic in public. So it was his clean image and not sharpness of his Tweet that made it effective.

Look I learnt so many swear words on Social Media !

At the release of Kapil Sibal's book “Shades of Truth” at Teen Murti on Friday, the master of ceremony appropriately remarked that more than a book release it appeared to be an occasion for the launch of the Mahgathbandhan ! Reason, the book launch had an obvious attendance of several top congress leaders and also of several other leaders from the Opposition. In attendance were Sharad Yadav, Sitaram Yechury, Farooq Abdullah, a freshly TMC minted Chandan Mitra. Former PM Manmohan Singh and Former VP Hamid Ansari also graced the event.

 

The panel discussion obviously veered around the 2019 elections. The general opinion was that its the Coalitions or the lack of it which will determine the outcome. But what stood out was the anecdotes that were shared on the occasion.

 

While underlining the importance of social media both Kapil Sibal and Chidambaram conceded that Congress failed to gauge the massive impact of Social Media in 2014. But while elaborating on the subject Chidambaram very honestly said that he was now fast learning the ropes in the realm of Social Media and revealed that the Social Media has also introduced him to the choicest of the swear words in Hindi.

 

Taking the mood of confessions forward , others picked up from where

Chidambaram left. Sharad Yadav said that he will like to reveal that Sri Sri Ravishankar himself had told him that the arrangements of food for the crowd that assembled at the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi for the Anna Hazare agitation against the UPA Govt. was done by him. Sibal did not step back and admitted that whole handling of Baba Ramdev Agitation including receiving him at the Delhi Airport by four top ministers in 2012 was a big mistake !

 

Chandan Mitra appeared quite tuned in to his newest Avatar of being a Trinamool man and forcefully said that the next PM will be from among the regional satraps and not from any national party. Yechury in a lighter vain was quick to point out his new loyalty to the TMC Supremo Mamta Bannerji. He also summed up the debate that centered around Who against Modi theme by coining – Its Bharat vs Modi in 2019.

Gauba panel recommendation may get implemented soon

By IndianMandarins 29 Aug 2018

Social media messages may impact harmony. Therefore, the Government of India has sent clear message to Social media platforms to follow the law strictly or face action.

A committee of secretaries headed by Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba was constituted after lynching of nearly 40 people in last one year probably due to circulation of fake news in popular social media platforms like WhatsApp. This high-level committee submitted its report to a Group of Ministers headed by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. The Home Minister will submit the committee's recommendations to PM Narendra Modi very soon.

The country representatives of all global social media platforms are in India. In case there are serious violation, then action may be initiated against them, sources said,

The top officials of different ministries and departments deliberated the issue in the wake of reports of many incidents of lynching, communal tension following circulation of fake news and communally sensitive videos.

During recent meetings with the representatives of the Twitter India, Facebook, WhatsApp and Youtube, the government officials made it clear that the social media platforms have to comply with the government directives.

This committee has suggested tightening the law by inserting clauses in the Indian Penal Code and the Code of Criminal Procedure as well to ensure stringent action against those who are caught violating the law.

The panel report will now be discussed by the GoM comprising External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad  and Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Thawar Chand Gehlot. The home minister heads this GoM.
