New Delhi, June 30 (IANS) The Congress on Saturday launched an “Unfollow Trolls Challenge” and urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to unfollow trollers on Twitter, who abuse, harass and give threats to people on internet.

Radhika Khera, National Media Coordinator of Congress, nominated Modi and Union Minister Piyush Goyal for the challenge and called upon them to unfollow their abusive trolls.

“Tired of online trolls, the women (and a few men) of the Congress social media team have put together a video making a collective plea to Prime Minister Narendra Modi this Social Media Day,” the Congress said in its official twitter account.

In the music video, inspired from the song “Let it be” by the music band The Beatles, a group of women have sung their own version of the song.

“This Social Media Day let’s all Social Media Users take a pledge to keep the virtual world clean and abuse free! Start by nominating two people to unfollow abusive trolls. I nominate Narendra Modi and Piyush Goyal to unfollow their abusive trolls,” Khare said in her tweet.

June 30 is observed as Social Media Day after a multi-platform media and entertainment company Mashable started it as a way to recognise and celebrate social media’s impact on global communication.
