Social Media Head Of Congress Is Seen Asking Volunteers To Create Fake Social Media Accounts, Video Goes Viral

Published on 7 February, 2018 at 4:20 pm By

Congress social media head and Karnataka leader Divya Spandana, popularly known as Ramya, courted controversy after she took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi wondering if he was on “pot”, after the prime minister said at a Bengaluru rally that farmers are his top priority and described ‘TOP’ as tomato, onion and potato. BJP’s IT wing head Amit Malviya said more than 3,500 farmers have committed suicide in Karnataka, the highest for any state in India, but “speaking for them is being on ‘POT’… Congress keeps it classy, again”.

With POT controversy refusing to die down, a short video of Ramya, who heads the Congress’ Social Media and Digital department, has emerged in which she is accused of telling Karnataka Congress social media volunteers to create multiple accounts to take on the BJP. The video has been leaked to the media by unidentified persons.

The video has been posted by Balaji Srinivas, Convenor of BJP Karnataka social media cell.

Here is the translation of the video:

Divya: Ok, What is your questions? Fake accounts.

[unclear chatter from crowd]



Divya : So, today all of you should create three accounts. One should be in your name. Another should be in someone else’s accounts. Third one should be in Srivatsa’s (Karnataka state social media head) account.

[someone from crowd] : We are planning to create a fake account.

Divya : There is a difference. Fake accounts are bots. There are like robots or machines. It is not a human. If one person has three accounts it is not wrong

Someone from crowd : Is it wrong to have many accounts madam?

Divya: No . I have one official account on facebook. I have a page as well. You can have an account for a colleague. So there is nothing wrong. It is like being in many whatsapp groups. If all of you have a whatsapp group for every booth, information can travel from Delhi to Mandya within a minute.

However, in her response, Ramya claimed that the BJP was circulating an “edited version” of the video. Her BJP counterpart Amit Malaviya sought a response from Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
