Bhopal: Holders of M.Tech, Ph.D. and M.Phil degrees are among 200 candidates vying for the post of Congress spokesperson in Madhya Pradesh.

They have applied for the “job” online on the Congress website, a party spokesman here told this newspaper on Friday.

 

“The Congress has inv-ited applications for the post of spokesperson in MP online. We have received so far applications from 200 people who inc-luded holders of M.Tech, Ph.D. and M.Phil degrees,” Congress spokesman Pankaj Chaturvedy said.

The party has decided to explore talents in MP to appoint them as spokesman following success of such an experiment in Gujarat recently.

The Congress has sought applications particularly from the people having oratory skills, researchers, content writers and social media handlers to become spokesman of the party in MP. At present, the Congress has six spokesmen and four panelists to participate in debates in TV channels in MP.

 

The party, however, wanted to appoint spokesmen in the district level to reach out to the people in the district and block levels.

“The current strength of spokesmen and TV panelists are found to be grossly inadequate...  There are around 20 TV news channels in MP now. Hence, the party felt the need to appoint more spokespersons,” Mr Chaturvedy said.
