Telugu Desam Party struggled to stay afloat to the brute force of the Prashant Kishor team’s social media tactics before the 2019 elections and paid a hefty price for it. Fans and supporters have been asking to revamp the party’s social media strategy for a long time. There have been some efforts after the 2019 defeat but there is a lot of room for improvement.
But the party’s official Twitter handle threw a surprise to the supporters last night. IT and Industries Minister Mekapati Gautham Reddy released a list of new investments to the state amounting to 30,000 Crore in two years of Jagan‘s rule. The list included many of the investments that have come to Andhra Pradesh during Chandrababu Naidu’s rule.
TDP is quick to debunk the claim with proofs in a very short time that even the supporters are left surprised. They posted a thread with eighteen tweets about how many of the companies on the list were the result of the hard work of Chandrababu Naidu and have got nothing to do with Jagan. The supporters are completely surprised because they were least expecting.
They are asking the party to continue a similar strategy going forward as well.
