Hyderabad: Loksatta founder Dr Jayaprakash Narayan said that social media can not only be ennobling, empowering and democratic, but can also be divisive in its effects. Dr Jayaprakash Narayan was delivering the valedictory address at the two-day workshop on ‘Voice Positive’ organised by the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, Osmania University, in association with Facebook and Swaniti. The workshop was aimed at promoting positive voices on social media.
Loksatta began as a citizen's movement in 1996 to help promote electoral and governance reforms. Loksatta Party was born in 2006 out of the realization that the best and brightest of society need to embrace politics. It is the party for the new generation, a generation that is sick and tired of dynastic and vote bank politics, a generation that has no time for politics run by the unholy trinity of corruption, greed and nepotism.
