Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee became the first Indian politician to use a Facebook 360 video for an election rally.

According to the official Twitter handle of all India Trinamool Congress, the TMC chief wrote on her Facebook page: “I am happy to share with all of you the new Facebook 360 degree video that is being used for the very first time ever, for any election campaign in India. Please watch some clips of a padyatra held earlier this week at Bardhaman town. My salute to the Ma-Maati-Manush for their overwhelming enthusiasm and participation. Yes, Trinamool is winning.”

As per the TMC's tweet, Banerjee had posted a 360 video of her padyatra in Bardhaman, held earlier this week, on her Facebook page yesterday.
