Kathmandu, 15 Aug.;  The CPN-UML is to adopt high-tech style in view of the election campaigning for the second CA election this year, RSS reports..

The party has decided to use the high-tech methods of publicity including e-mail, website, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, videos and documentaries concluding that the means of traditional system have been less effective and dearer than the high-tech ways, said UML Chief of Publicity Department, Pradeep Gyawali.

The traditional means of publicity have been less effective and just become a one-way communication, therefore, UML prefers the high-tech style, added Gyawali.

"The new generation is displeased with politics, and the youths have dissatisfaction that the political parties just exploited them for their partisan interests and that we have adopted the policy to have direct interaction to understand the gap between them and the party,” He said.

The UML has also been shooting documentaries in the districts and two others in the centre for the election campaign. The first documentary would include UML party policy and views while the other will include materials that reflects the horrors of armed conflict.
