The Desperate Brand PR Managers & Compromised Data: Creeping Right-wing Cronies From Digital TV Spy Networks, Social Media Things to Internet on Big Data – development in full throttle! Coverts apart, earlier there were formal proposals to have a separate and official social media wing, independent of the existing Press Information Bureau (PIB) in India, spending some millions of public money in a social media cell to curtail free speech and manage opposing forces – to lure and fool all types of consumers: voting, eating, shouting, writing, working, watching, earning, looting, learning, governing, shopping, ruling, shooting, advertising…etc. Media reports say that funds will come by cutting down budget of some schemes to increase outreach of government’s achievements in rural areas. New focus on uprising urban youth with creative state sponsored advert bytes! Sounds like, instead fixing the root cause called, corrupt approach to public life and governance, they are venturing to fix and dare the uprising commoners with help of smarty babus, right wing think-tanks and profiteering agencies.

Unless proved otherwise, there is no harm in assuming that ultimate goal is to bring back the suppressed public sanity and do business (public corruption) as usual. After all, they are used to many decades of silent loot starting when our ancestors didn’t knew about “forced slavery of elite” – old and lucrative habits are hard to go. Hope this pessimist view is turned upside down via some good sense coming back to them in this new Social Media Wing venture – and not turning out to be a POTA Jumla, TADA Hack, Populist Jugaad, Privacy Loot, Citizen Profiling, CBI Setting or Nazism for outspoken Internet users and free speech.
