Kejriwal, Sisodia attack on Modi with RTI on social media ad policy of Centre Govt. :- On Friday, the Deputy chief minister of Delhi – Manish Sisodia filed an RTI request with the information cell of the office of the Prime Minister seeking details on the policy of the Central Government for advertising initiatives including the ‘Narendra Modi app’ and ‘Make in India’ on social media.

The Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI) in last month had registered a preliminary enquiry against him in connection with alleged irregularities in the social media campaign of AAP government – ‘Talk to AK’.
Through the RTI, Sisodia asked that I want to know what process the Centre follows in advertising its campaigns like Make in India, Narendra Modi app, Start Up India and Digital India on social media. Whose credit limit has been used in putting up these ads?
After filing the RTI application, Sisodia told reporters that when we connect with people through social media it is dubbed corruption but when Modiji does Mann Ki Baat it is projected as patriotism.
Deputy CM Manish Sisodia claimed that everyone is aware why information on the higher education degrees of Modi has not been shared yet.
On Tweeter, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted that Modi Ji, if you’re getting Manish probed by the CBI, a CBI investigation should also be ordered into this issue.
Earlier, Deputy CM of Delhi ManishSisodia had written to the Principal Secretary of the PM – Nripendra Misra seeking details of the process of payments made for social media campaigns for various Centre-run schemes.
