Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati has debuted on the social media with the popular microblogging site, Twitter.
Her official Twitter handle @SushriMayawati displays the blue tick denoting an authenticated account. The handle displayed that the account was active since October 2018.
So far, the dalit czarina had displayed apathy towards the social media with party leaders even saying that the core constituency of the party does not engage with such mediums on a large scale. Instead, the party relied heavily upon personal communication with its supporters and cadres.
Nonetheless, realising the instant reach and influence that the various social media platforms have come to acquire over the years, BSP has also joined the bandwagon with its supreme leader Mayawati marking her entry in the cyber space.
As per the party press communiqué, Mayawati would be expressing her views on national and matters of political importance on Twitter.
