Popular film actress and former Lok Sabha MP, Ramya will lead the social media team of the Congress.
As part of a major reshuffle within the Congress, the party has replaced Rohtak’s Lok Sabha MP Deependra Hooda with Ramya as the head of the social media wing of the party.
The decision was taken after it was found that Ramya was very active on Twitter and would be capable to handle the social media wing of the party. The Congress during its introspection found that it has been on the receiving end on the social media. Other parties have a good social media team and hence it was necessary to install someone strong to lead the social media team, the Congress felt.
The Congress has been making major changes in its organisational structure after facing back to back defeat in the elections. The Congress inducted nearly 17 secretaries. Two general secretaries have been replaced at Rajasthan and poll-bound Gujarat. The state chiefs of Uttarakhand and Punjab have also been replaced.
The elections for the post of Congress President is expected to be held between September 15 to October 15. Currently, the membership drive in the Congress is on and will end by May 15.
