Millennium Post

Mamata’s Facebook page instant hit

After the West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee launched her official Facebook page on Friday evening, its posts soon went viral online, while simultaneously grabbing headlines across India. This was reported exclusively by Millennium Post, henceforth creating a buzz in the media.

Elucidating on how stupendous the response had been, she posted on the page's timeline, 'Thank you all for your overwhelming response, in such a short span of time, for this great cause of nation... I am sure this united voice will take public issues to the next level.'

With constant speculations spiralled by the presidential poll scenario, the Trinamool Congress supremo took to the social-networking website Facebook to explain her point of view. On Sunday, the page was updated with a post that clearly mentioned her perspective. 'It is most unfortunate that politics in our great nation has become murky and values, public interest have been compromised through the use of money, power and scams. Ethical and principled politics has eroded today - this decay has to be reversed at all costs to return to the great traditions of this country,' read the post on Banerjee's timeline.

Banerjee also made an effort to reach out to India's youth through this page. Her post, 'I appeal to all Indian citizens and of course, the young generation of India, to raise their voices and be counted to fight against corruption, back-room deal making, Machiavellian manipulations and machinations.'

'That is why we should raise our voices and stand by principles. Conviction, values and integrity' she added via the post. The first post on the website had read, 'Today I am starting a dynamic engagement process with all of you through this page. This is my first post on this page. I am a humble, transparent common person like the vast majority of you. I gave voice to what millions of Indians want to see in a President.'

Justifying her support for the former president A P J Abdul Kalam, she had posted, 'We in the All India Trinamool Congress support Dr. Kalam as the Presidential candidate. I have already given a clarion call to other parties to support Dr. Kalam as President.'
