"There is less than two years for the next polls and the social platform is one of the biggest media for our electoral campaign. You all see that the opponents of us as well as the state have chosen the social media as a big platform for hatching conspiracy and spreading propaganda. They are spreading propaganda and confusion against the country from abroad," he said.
