The UPCC today announced its 14-member media team, after conducting a written test for selection of spokespersons for the party.
For assisting the team, a four-member media input division and a team of four special invitees had also been constituted, accommodating senior leaders who were leading the media and communication department of the party for a long time.
Special invitees -- Virendra Madan, Amarnath Agarwal, Dwijendra Tripathi and Surendra Rajput, all former spokespersons -- would cooperate on the request of the UPCC media.
The special invitees and input division was aimed at bringing in experience in the media division of the state unit.
The party had last month conducted a written test and interviewed candidates for its new media team.
"If you want to be a spokesperson for the state and represent it, you need to have the information about it. You need to have knowledge about basic things," Chaturvedi who was here to interview the team members had said.
Babbar had dissolved his media team and three other departments of the party to pave the way for appointing a new team in preparation for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
