Congress is proud of her immense contribution in Nation building and in the development of modern day Gujarat. Following the split of Gujarat from the Bombay state in 1960, Congress has dedicated herself in the upliftment of the state and its people. The strong vision, bold reforms and successful social movements established by the Congress government have built the foundation of the success story of Gujarat.
Late Prime Minister Shri Rajiv Gandhiji brought the Information Technology dream to reality. And our country was ushered into a historic IT revolution. Telephone, Mobile and then Internet – our leapfrogs in these sectors have been possible because of Shri Rajiv Gandhiji’s vision.
It seems unlikely to imagine a world without internet and mobile today. Social media has become a tool of societal commentary and free expression. Especially in Gujarat, some people here have successfully abused these technologies of Photoshop and Social media to rise to power. Gujarat Congress IT Cell was established in 2011 with a mission to counter this maligning of these sacred platforms by some, and to give back the voice to the common people, to meaningfully engage with them.
The IT cell has worked hard in establishing a founded place for the Congress party on various platforms like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube. The youth of Gujarat have connected deeply with the Congress party and have become our ambassadors. IT cell has also released a mobile application that is popular among youth.
Thousands of volunteers, writers, leaders, RTI activists, social workers, retired officers are associated with the IT cell. IT workshops have been successfully conducted in various cities of Gujarat to engage the youth with the party and politics of Gujarat.
The IT cell today has become a strong and solid organisation assisting the Congress party. Our Vice President Shri Rahul Gandhiji has appreciated the work of the cell and provided crucial guidance.
Gujarat Congress IT Cell marked a strong presence in the workshop organised by All India Congress Committee. The crucial work done in the Delhi Congress campaign was recognised by Shri Sonia Gandhiji and Shri Rahul Gandhiji.
The IT cell today boasts of more than 2,000 office bearers, active at taluka and district level.
More than 1,500 volunteers are constantly engaging on Facebook, more than 800 on Twitter. A team of 1,000 volunteers is always ready to take up any assignment of Congress party.
IT Cell has captivated the online audience multiple times by running successful trends like #Janvedna #ModiBetraysGujarat #ModiFoolsGujarat #BJPSeBetiBacho #ModiSurgicalStrikeonCommonMan
It is imperative to show the real face of the people who have risen to power through the abuse of these platforms. The IT cell is very well prepared for that. This Cyber meet is commissioned with that sole purpose.
The IT cell is committed to realising Gujarat Pradesh Congress President Shri Bharatsinh Solankiji’s dream of ‘Navsarjan Gujarat’.
The exuberant youth of IT cell is ready to commit to this dream under the leadership and guidance of our leaders Shri Bharatsinh Solankiji and Shri Shankarsinh Vaghelaji.
So, come, let us commit to ‘Navsarjan’ from this very day. Let us pledge we are ready to commit to the Congress party in whatever capacity demanded – whether Social Media or at Booth level.
When Gujarat is disintegrating under the BJP leadership in the last two decades, let us come together to commit to the ‘Navsarjan’ of our Gujarat.
