Social media websites are quite a rage among youngsters these days. And the leaders on campus are sparing no chance of using it to promote their activities and reaching out to campus students.
NSUI’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/nsui.in) which has more than 1,75,000 likes provides all the details of recent events and appointments of party members. “We have a centralised social media team.All our office bearers are active on both Twitter and Facebook, posting live updates all the time,” says Roji M John, national president, NSUI.
To help students with easy access to previous years’ Delhi University question papers, NSUI launched an app called PaperPedia which is available on Google Play. “I post my views on various issues and details of upcoming programmes on Facebook regularly. This way we are able to mobilise students to fight for their rights,” says Saket Bahuguna, Delhi state secretary, ABVP.
Sucheta De, national president, AISA, uses social media for dialogue with society. “We regularly report our movement and political positions on our official website www.aisa.in. Also, individual comrades regularly update campaigns and respond to queries through social media,” says De.
