Congress MLA eligibility: 15000 likes, 5000 followers

Madhya Pradesh Congress has taken a strange decision of sorts while shortlisting the MLA candidates for the following elections. As per reports, Congress party IT cell has made it clear that contestant should have an active presence on social media platforms if they are expecting an MLA ticket.

Apparently, every candidate should have an individual Facebook page which has more than 15000 likes and Twitter profile with more than 5000 followers. Congress party IT cell in-charge, Abhay Tiwari has ordered the party leaders to stay more active on their social media profiles in order to build a positive vibe before the elections.

Well, this surely is a strange set of rules from the age-old party and it would be interesting to watch if they can yield positive results through this strategy.
