CPM cadres warned against airing party matters on social media [Legal Monitor Worldwide]
(Legal Monitor Worldwide Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) CPI(M) general secretary Prakash Karat on Saturday cautioned cadres against posting their views on party matters on social networking and blogging sites, saying such acts were against party discipline.
Karat told reporters here that some of the party members have Facebook pages, with Internet and new forms of social media being active now. "While they discuss their problems inside the party, they will not violate the discipline by giving interviews to the print media," he said.
"Several of our good party members, however, express their individual opinion through their Facebook and Twitter pages, believing that it is their own individual opinion.
"Unfortunately, we have not been able to educate them that it is also a violation of party discipline. So we have now begun educating our party members to express their views only inside the party forum," he said.
