Patna: If reports are to be believed, around 3 lac cyber commandos of Bharatiya Janata Party are all set to connect with voters through social media campaign for upcoming Bihar Polls. BJP's cyber team has identified 152 assembly seats with considerable presence and impact of social media. The party has divided the state into  152 seats and 3 zones.

It has placed 68 seats under the high impact zone with more than 10%  of voters using social media site Facebook.  

The cyber team has placed another 13 seats under medium impact zone with 5-10% Facebook users.

The less impact zone provides a platform for healthy discussion on  local issues and promotes the local candidates.

The campaign will also highlight Bihar's past glory; it will also explore the possibilities of development through the culture, tourism in the state.

Though JD(U) created its campaign page earlier, BJP members claim that Nitish Kumar's party  has only 1.18 lakh likes whereas their  page has got 2.32 lakh likes.

Bihar has around 9 % internet users that is way below the national average of 30 which is an indication of sluggish growth of the state and the saffron party plans to raise it during elections.
