Journey of Opposition placards: Social media inputs to Khan Market & finally Parliament | Political Pulse News,The Indian Express

Congress provides placards to all Opposition parties except TMC, whose posters are more slogan-driven unlike Congress’s slightly colourful ones.

Among the many tasks that Manickam Tagore has is sifting through creatives that the Congress’s social media team uploads on its various handles. The Congress whip in the Lok Sabha also scans through interesting posts he receives from his friends, among them those from the Left. He then identifies the interesting ones and sends them to his aide.

These are modified and made into placards — the display of which has become the bone of contention between Opposition members and the Chair during this session and led to the suspension of four Congress MPs, including Tagore, in the Lok Sabha and 23 Opposition members in the Rajya Sabha. While the Congress MPs were initially suspended for the remainder of the Monsoon session, the Rajya Sabha members were suspended till the end of last week.

Speaker Om Birla revoked the suspension of the Lok Sabha MPs — Tagore, Ramya Haridas, TN Prathapan and S Jothimani — on Monday after seeking assurance from the Opposition that it will not bring placards or other exhibits into the House. Tagore told The Indian Express that the Opposition members were forced to display placards as Sansad TV did not telecast their protests.

In the Congress, Tagore is in charge of getting the placards made for members of the Lok Sabha and his counterpart Syed Nasir Hussain does the same in the Rajya Sabha. “We go through the creatives put out by the Congress social media team. Sometimes, slight modifications are made. For instance, if a picture of a gas cylinder is to be put … we ask the designers to add that,” Tagore said.
