Election Tracker 2019

With BJP in lead at the moment, both the political parties are leveraging social as an official mouthpiece. Election Tracker 2019, takes a look at the social media statistics for the same.

How different are General Elections 2019 from that held in 2014? Well, for one, Abki Baar Modi Sarkar isn’t the slogan, and second, digital marketing this time around is far more evolved. The basic distinction between BJP and Congress’ official social media channels would be the language of choice (with BJP consistently using Hindi in the devnagri script).

Social Samosa in association with Talkwalker, takes a look at a comparative analysis between BJP & Congress’ social media strategy. The data analyzed is from April 1 to April 16, 2019.
