Swarna Bharat Party (SBP), a newly founded political venture, is looking for candidates for the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections.

SBP is a relatively new and unrecognized party in the Indian Political spectrum. The party recognizes itself as classical liberal, and is very vocal about how Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) is robbing Indians of their opportunities and freedom.

The party promises to make India liberal again, because according to international standards, we are as a country nothing but ‘banana republic.’ Our country needs a change and SBP, if elected, promises to change India for better.

Sanjeev Sabhlok notes that people are not happy with BJP as it has been spreading rabid communalism and stoking hatred.

In a recent blog entry by Sanjeev Sabhlok, he calls out for 50 more candidates who are willing to be a part of their team and stand in the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections against some of the biggest names in Indian Politics.

The message which was put out, underlines the unhappiness and dissatisfaction of Indian Public with BJP, while completely dismissing Congress as an alternative. It also highlights the successful footing SBP has been able to achieve in its short tenure.

Sabhlok wrote,

I’d like to update that after putting in just a couple of months of effort on the ground in some 2019 Lok Sabha constituencies, we are starting to get a very good response from people, and are now starting to prepare booth level organisation in one of the constituencies.

The post shone a light on the bias people have for the parties who put out more candidates in the election. Keeping this in mind, and the good responses that the party is getting for their work in various constituencies, SBP is in want of 50 more candidates to fight election under their banner.

SBP believes each one of us can make a difference and to bring in a change, we need to put in our efforts, at a very personal cost and time.

Interested candidates can contact SBP via their e-mail address, info@swarnabharat.in

Twitter Takes Multiple Steps To Curb Misinformation Before Elections in India

Twitter is taking “multi-variable” steps, including the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools, to curb the spread of misleading information on its platform ahead of 2019 general election in India, Co-Founder and CEO Jack Dorsey said here on Monday.

Addressing a Town Hall-style meeting at the Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi (IIT-D), Dorsey said fake news is a way too big category.

“The real problem is not misinformation per se as jokes can also be categorised as misinfomation. But misinformation that is spread with the intent to mislead people is a real problem,” stressed the Twitter CEO who is in India on a week-long maiden visit.

Dorsey, who got a rousing reception at IIT-D with the students wildly cheering the young entrepreneur, likened solving the problem of misleading information to that of addressing a security issue, or building a lock.

“No one can build a perfect lock, but we need to stay ahead of our attackers. AI could probably help,” Dorsey told the audience.

Earlier in the day, the Twitter CEO met Congress President Rahul Gandhi and discussed various steps the social network was taking to curb the spread of fake news and boost healthy conversation on its platform.

Dorsey also met Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama over the weekend. He was also expected to meet Union IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad in the wake of the growing criticism over Twitter’s role in the spread of misinformation and fake news as India faces Assembly polls in five states in November-December ahead of next year’s general elections.

Twitter, along with other social media platforms, including Facebook, came under intense scrutiny of policymakers in the US for their failure to stop the spread of misinformation by Russia-linked accounts on their platforms during the 2016 Presidential election.

The micro-blogging site since then has stepped up its efforts to curb the spread of divisive messages and fake news on its platform.

To further protect the integrity of elections, Twitter recently announced that it would now delete fake accounts engaged in a variety of emergent, malicious behaviour.

As part of the new rules, accounts that deliberately mimic or are intended to replace accounts that were previously suspended for violating rules may be identified as fake accounts, Twitter said recently.
