All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) is planning to form a team of 30,000 ‘cyber sainiks’, in an attempt to counter Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s strong social media campaigns
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has reportedly promised a reward for the best performing social media ‘sainik’.
“There will be competition in every district among youths who are working hard to highlight our achievements and counter the BJP with facts and figures,” Banerjee said.
The chief minister’s nephew and party’s Lok Sabha MP, Abhishek Banerjee, added that every assembly constituency will have at least 100 sainiks.
“I want these 30,000 ‘cyber sainiks’ to convince those who left the party to return to TMC. Bring back two people every week to the party fold,” Abhishek added.
