BJP to give tickets to party loyalists popular on social media

NEW DELHI: If reports are true, it seems that BJP central leadership is finally waking up to the mood on social media.

As was reported by OpIndia.com earlier, many BJP supporters had started getting disillusioned and disappointed with the party as they felt that their opinions were not being heard.

Now the party appears to have realized that they need to actively involve their supporters on social media.

According to a report published by Hindi newspaper Amar Ujala, central leadership of BJP has asked its state unit in Delhi to give tickets to those persons who are active and popular on social media.

Although it’s not yet clear if the party is planning to choose a totally new and fresh face amongst its social media support base or it’s just asking ticket hopefuls to be active on social media, it’s clear that the party is now keeping social media in its electoral equations.

It will be a game-changer if Delhi unit of BJP actually give ticket to someone who’s popular and influential on social media, apart from being active on ground too. This could placate angry and disappointed supporters, who would think that they have got one of their own to raise their issues.

Earlier, many supporters of BJP had trended #BaggaVsAK49 and demanded Tajinder Bagga of Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena to be given ticket to fight against Arvind Kejriwal. Bagga is one of the popular BJP supporting Twitter user who has also done ground work.

There are other contenders too, but before that BJP will have to officially confirm this news and invite its online supporters to apply for tickets in the upcoming assembly elections in Delhi.
