With the political parties actively using the social media for their electioneering, Collector V. Vishnu has established a control room to exclusively monitor the social media platforms being used by the candidates to reach the voters."Since the candidates have to spend a sizable amount for electioneering through the social media, it will also be included in the poll expenditure," Mr. Vishnu said.
The Collector also said that the monitoring of social media would effectively check the spreading of fake and objectionable messages through social media by the candidates for the sake of getting votes.
