Who manages different social media accounts of Prime Minister's Office?
An application was filed under the Right to Information (RTI) Act to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to know about the details of people who respond and interact on behalf of the PMO in the social media. The PMO has replied that the there is a social ‘media cell’ which manages it. The reply adds that there is not separate budget allocated to keep PMO's social media accounts updated.
Regarding the specific query of the RTI applicant Salim Baig about the ‘records’ or ‘file notings’ about the social media activities, the PMO replied that there was no such records available.
The efficient use of social medial by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been a new phenomenon in the Indian politics and is gradually being imitated by many others, including political rivals. The regular and quick tweets by the PMO has been noticed by all and been appreciated.
