Lovely emphasized that individuals who align with Congress policies can now directly access Rahul Gandhi’s posts through this channel. He highlighted the misuse of social media by the BJP and its allies for spreading fake news, asserting that Gandhi’s WhatsApp channel will be a platform for truth without fearing consequences.
The DPCC president noted that the channel is not limited to Congress workers and leaders but is open to common people, Residents Welfare Associations, and those affiliated with social and other organizations. This inclusivity aims to provide direct access to Rahul Gandhi’s various activities. Lovely encouraged more people to join the channel, stating that it not only serves as a platform for Congress workers but also projects the views and policies of the party, contributing to its strengthening in Delhi.
