Looks like the way political parties are being exposed on social media, very soon we will have to open a new section. With less than a month to go for the 16th Lok Sabha elections, political parties are using all means to prove why their candidate should be the next prime minister. This also means the use of false marketing propaganda with the help of social media.

The latest exposé is of the Bharatiya Janata Party, claimed as fake by Wikileaks, the site which publishes submissions of secret information, news leaks and classified media from anonymous news sources and whistle-blowers.

With corruption touching the brink in the nation, this time the motto for most of the political parties is to claim how incorruptible they are and try and make a difference to the voter. In doing so, BJP went to the extent of saying that Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange has stated that US fears Modi since he is incorruptible.

The below tweet which portrays the false claim and asking voters to donate to Modi4PMFund, was shared on Twitter by Prasanna Karthik R. The tweet that has received more than 90 RTs so far comes from the handle known to be in-charge of operations of the BJP Mission 272+ campaign.

BJP supporters have been backing this claim blindly when it was finally stated by Wikileaks on Twitter that Assange has made no such statement and it is a false propaganda from the BJP.

The below tweets from the official account of Wikileaks says it all on how BJP has been promoting the false propaganda on social media.

While social media is being misused, it is also the same medium which is clearing the mist between truth and lies. We saw this same recently with Arvind Kejriwal, Founder of Aam Aadmi Party, who was once again under the limelight of controversy. The ex-Delhi CM was seen asking a well known Aaj Tak TV journalist Punya Prasun Vajpayee to emphasize certain sections of his interview in the video that later became viral on YouTube.

With loop holes in social media and technology, we are sure to witness more controversies from political parties who are stressing on Photoshopping skills, as the fever of Lok Sabha elections heats up in the country.
