Pic Caption: Balancesheet of CPI(M)’s 25-year rule: a huge slum in front of Tripura state assembly building in Agartala
The Central Committee (CC) team of the CPI(M) recently planned a major cyber blitzkrieg through which it wanted to manufacture a trend with two hashtags — #People1stTripuraModel and Left4Tripura – on Twitter.
The planned campaign received lukewarm response from weary and listless CPI(M) cadres as they refused to even tweet or retweet the campaign material supplied by the CC.
One among the few who persisted with the campaign for a while was CPI(M)’s Lok Sabha Member MB Rajesh. But he also lost his steam midway as the response was poor. All the Twitter handles posted the same message.
Meanwhile, the CC team’s WhatsApp message which was sent to the cadres was also leaked out. Twitterati made fun of the campaign and the Marxist MP.
The message read:
“Party CC team is planning to trend 2 hashtags for Tripura Election on Twitter 2maro at 11 am.
- The main hashtag #People1stTripuraModel
- #Left4Tripura as the 2nd hashtag
Campaign material will be distributed at 10.30am 2maro
Please make it a grand success”
