What is the latest issue?
The latest case related to the toolkit is related to the allegation of BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra.
A few days ago, Sambit Patra accused the Congress of using the toolkit to tarnish the image of the BJP and the country.
On May 18, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra and BJP General Secretary BL Santosh tweeted screenshots of two documents each of four pages each. One of these documents was about the Kovid-19 and the other was about the Central Vista project.
It was claimed in these tweets that this is the toolkit of the Congress and the Congress has prepared this toolkit to discredit the Modi government regarding the Corona epidemic in the country.
It was alleged that through this toolkit, the party told its volunteers and activists that they used words like ‘Super spreader Kumbh’ and ‘Modi strain’ for the mutant strain of the virus, to defame the Modi government. Use it on social media, but Eid has to be presented as ‘Happy Social Gathering’.
The Congress has also filed a case against it.
Later on Twitter, his tweets were categorized as ‘Manipulated Media’.
Manipulated media means a photograph, video or screenshot through which there is doubt about the authenticity of the claims being made and its original form is edited or tampered with.
In response to the allegations of Patit Patra, the head of the Congress Research Department, Rajiv Gowda told the PRESS24 NEWS that “We have never made such a document. When there is such a big crisis in the country and how much is there to be done, BJP will not do that by the Youth Congress.” The work done by has started to malign and the attention of the people is diverting from the original issues. ”
Toolkit controversy is not new
However, the toolkit case came up for discussion a few days ago. When the investigation was started in India with a tweet by Sweden’s well-known environmental activist Greta Thunberg.
Greta Thanberg wrote on Twitter that “If you want to help farmers, you can take help of this toolkit (document)”.
But the Delhi Police had described it as a “document which creates revolt among the people” and took it under scrutiny.
What is a toolkit after all?
In the current era, whatever movements take place in different parts of the world, whether it is ‘Black Lives Matter’, America’s ‘Anti-Lockdown Protest’, ‘Climate Strike Campaign’ or any other movement related to environment. Everywhere, people associated with the movement prepare some ‘action points’, that is, plan some things that can be done to further the movement.
The document in which these ‘action points’ are entered is called a toolkit.
The term ‘toolkit’ is more commonly used in the context of social media for this document, but in addition to social media strategy, information about physical performance is also given.
Toolkits are often shared among those whose presence can prove to be helpful in increasing the impact of the movement.
In such a situation, it would not be wrong to call the toolkit an important part of the strategy of any movement.
You can call the toolkit the sophisticated and modern form of posters that have been used on the walls, which have been used by the agitators for years to appeal or invoke.
According to social media and marketing experts, the main objective of this document is to coordinate among the people (supporters of the movement). The toolkit usually describes what people can write, which hashtags they can use, what time and time between which tweet or post will benefit and which one will benefit from being included in tweets or Facebook posts.
According to experts, the effect of this is that at the same time the presence of any movement or campaign is registered by the action of the people, that is, in social media trends and then through such a strategy to make them appear in the eyes of the people She goes.
Not only the agitators, all political parties, big companies and other social groups also use such ‘toolkits’ on many occasions.
