Gujarat-based Rohan Gupta replaces Divya Spandana as Congress Social Media head

Rohan Gupta has earlier served as social media head for Congress for Gujarat ahead of 2017 state assembly elections.

Over four months after Divya Spandana, Congress’ IT cell head deactivated her Twitter account and vanished from public space, Congress has announced a new social media head. In a statement released today, Congress has announced Rohan Gupta as new social media cell head with immediate effect.

Gupta has earlier served as social media head for Congress for Gujarat ahead of 2017 state assembly elections. He is the son of Congress leader Rajkumar Gupta and was currently the national media coordinator of AICC.

During the 2017 Gujarat State Assembly elections, Gupta was found sharing fake ‘survey’ predicting poll results after the phase 1 of voting was concluded. On 10th December 2017 Rohan Gupta had shared a survey of the polling done in the first phase of Gujarat, which showed Congress winning 65 seats out of total 89. The second phase for elections was yet to be held in Gujarat on 14th December 2017.

Following this controversy, Parindu Bhagat, in-charge of Gujarat election legal cell, on behalf of BJP leaders has filed an application for publication of exit poll as violation of Election Commission’s notification which had banned publication of any exit poll before 14th December 2017. An offence was registered against Gupta in Ahmedabad Crime Branch’s cyber cell.
