The Editor,

Dear Sir,

Subject: Regarding the Impact of Irrelevant News through Social Media


With due respect, I want to point out that general elections are around the corner and this is the juncture where the sensitivity of people increases to a great extent. Political leaders while giving speeches, may sometime speak on a burning issue to gain political mileage and any small issue/ conflict could snowball into a major issue.

On top of that, people forward and share sensitive news on their social media without checking the authenticity which could evoke unnecessary tension and complicate situations. My humble request to people is to double-check every news they receive on social media before forwarding it. I wish we have a peaceful and participative election-season.


Thanking you,

Yours sincerely

Nikhil Kumar
