1,360 social media influencers recruited in KP

No one was paid by government, from taxpayers' money. PTI used to falsly accused Maryam for running a social media cell on government resources but today they are doing the same and not ashamed.

Yar jis cheez ka nhn pata hota us kay baray main nhn boltay.

As for this initiative, people are being provided jobs in an upcoming field, especially in such times. To is main masla kia hai?

At least better than doling out billions to media houses of choice.

This is actually true and i think its a huge waste of money. The way these political parties run govts are not too different from each other. PMLN pays media by ads and PTI receuits social media wailaas. Atleast in case of PTI money is going to common ppl instead of rich media houses.
 
This amount should have went to Geo news, Tribune, Jung etc instead just like our PM shahbaz gifted 1700 millions in advertisements to these media houses. Pathetic KP govt.


This is over and above of those 3670 million spent spent by PTI federal government, even PTI's KP government from 2013-18 spent Rs.1630 million for advertisements.
 
Its a Jang network news source . Enough said.

P.S PTI doesn't need to recruit anyone ...we all are ptians to defend country against pmln and ppp trolls
 

1,360 social media influencers recruited in KP​


The influencers will be paid Rs25,000/month (Rs. 408,000,000 per year) to counter negative propaganda against the PTI-led government​

The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa provincial government has recruited around 1,360 social media influencers (SMIs).



The newly recruited SMIs will counter fake news and negative propaganda against the PTI-led provincial government. They will also create awareness at grassroots level about the reforms being carried out by the government in the public interest. An amount of Rs736 million has been allocated for the social media participatory platform project. Each SMI will be paid Rs25,000 monthly salary. All influencers have been recruited as interns for one year; however, the contract is extendable.

The opposition parties in KP have termed the recruitment of social media influencers an attempt to spread chaos in politics. The provincial government has completed the hiring process of the SMIs in Peshawar, Mardan, Charsadda, Bannu, Dera Ismail Khan, Dir Upper, Dir Lower, Abbottabad, Battagram, Buner, Chitral Lower, Hangu, Haripur, Karak, Kohat, Kohistan Upper, Lakki Marwat, Malakand, Mansehra, Nowshera, Shangla, Swabi, Swat, Tank, Tor Ghar, Kohistan Lower, Bajaur, Khar, Khyber, Kurram, Mohmand, North Waziristan, Orakzai, South Waziristan, FR Bannu, FR Dera Ismail Khan, FR Kohat, FR Lakki Marwat, FR Peshawar, FR Tank, Kolai Pallas, and Chitral Upper.

According to the official documents, Rs870 million had been allocated for the project in the initial PC-1, but the amount was reduced to Rs736 million in the revised PC-1. Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Barrister Mohammad Ali Saif told this correspondent that the objective of the project was to establish social media participatory platforms for creating public awareness and getting feedback on reform initiatives and encouraging civic responsibility.

He said the government had assigned the SMIs an important task of highlighting loopholes in the public service delivery. They will track and trace any human rights violation and public grievances surfacing on the social media.

Muhammad Ali Saif said the social media was cost-effective and easily accessible to everyone. The youngsters would help the government by creating awareness regarding polio and other campaigns.

Sardar Hussain Babak, the parliamentary leader in the KP assembly, said the PTI government used the government resources for political purposes. The PTI has recruited people on political grounds on the boards of all the institutions for the last nine years.

“The government will use these youngsters as keyboard warriors against the institutions and individuals. Social media will be used to defame politicians to spread anarchy in the country. There was no need to recruit 1,400 people for the social media in the presence of the Information Department,” he said.

The project will be executed through the PIU, headed by an independent project director. The KP government has appointed Zar Ali as project director (PD) of the social media participatory platform, who was working as deputy director IT in the Information Department. Furthermore, three communication consultants were also hired. Apart from the PD and communication consultants, one regular accountant would assist in the accounting matters of the project. The activities as per project objectives will be carried out by the social media influencers.

Project Director Zar Ali told this correspondent that a total of 9,379 candidates had submitted applications for which the qualification standard was intermediate or diploma in IT. However, the candidates must have at least 1,000 followers on any social media platform. Around 3,692 candidates were found eligible under the set criteria. Only 2,012 candidates came for interviews, out of which 1,096 were selected. Still, 157 seats are vacant and would be advertised soon.


ہمیں گالیاں دینے والے اب خیبر پختونخوا سے تنخواہ بھی پائیں گے
The News part of Geo group and part of PMLN. Bring decent source next time
 
So other parties can have a militant wing but PTI cannot have a media wing.

Parties who have had and still have militant wings are least qualified to tell anyone what to do.

Dont like this decision but since PTI does not wish to have a militant wing, I see no harm in having a media wing.
 
No one was paid by government, from taxpayers' money. PTI used to falsly accused Maryam for running a social media cell on government resources but today they are doing the same and not ashamed.

Yeah u r right. Maryum didnt use tax money to run media cells. She bought entire media houses, prime example GEO.
 
To OP, and other bots.

No amount of propaganda will help you guys now. It's about survival of human (i.e. food, water, shelter), soon you guys will be on the crosshairs of hungry Pakistanis.

Imran Khan warned about economy nose diving due to regime change, - Establishment didn't listen

Imran Khan warned about crisis like Sri Lanka emerging in Pakistan - didn't listen.
 
The secessionist movement has taken momentum in kpk
 
There are 1360 social media influencers in KP?

Those FA fail "social media influencers" are getting training in a 5* hotel of Islamabad, if someone dig into it, this training would also cost millions, contract would be with the senator who narrates CV of Imran Khan before his every speech.
