New Delhi: At a time when major political parties are vying for a space in social media, Union minister Shashi Tharoor on Tuesday said the platform alone cannot help win elections but gives new options of reaching out to public.

Speaking at the launch of a social networking website in New Delhi, Tharoor said, "One cannot win elections by using only the social media, but it certainly is an asset as it gives new options of reaching to the public. We cannot escape from it."

Social media will play an active role once there is a convergence of mobile and Internet, Tharoor said.
