Delays and glitches marred the Delhi BJP’s first ever social media event on Friday. Touted as an event “to connect with Generation Next”, it took off 30 minutes late as unit chief Satish Upadhyay had to attend an event in Rajouri Garden. Despite asking people to send in questions, the party replied to just 15 of them.
The event was also marred by glitches, despite a team of experts handling the proceedings. Upadhyay himself was missing from the office and media convenor Praveen Shankar Kapoor said the chief was replying on his smart phone from “party general secretary Ashish Sood’s residence”.
The live chat too did not go as planned as a personal touch was missing from the event. The replies were sent from the handle — BJPDelhiState — making it a party event. On Friday morning, the Delhi BJP launched its website and said an interactive session would be held in the evening. The party is seeking suggestions from the people for its manifesto 2015.
