The brief agenda as provided to us mentions that
The meet is to discuss using social media as a mechanism to get people
- To Vote
- To make INFORMED choices. The choice should be clear, based on policy/track record or other factors, and not vague/last moment decisions.
- Be Vocal about their stances, so rather than banishing politics as something ugly, we need to all have a critical / participative approach.
- Influence other un-informed voters, who would cast a careless vote that might be cancelled out amongst themselves.
BJP says, “This meet is going to be a platform where they would like to acknowledge the role of bloggers in shaping opinions, and invite their ideas and thoughts on how it can be used constructively. It would be helpful if the attendees come prepared with their research rather than making blatant, unsubstantiated allegations to be fair to this initiative.
