The minister formally launched a dedicated Facebook page of the OPOLFED to uniformly expand the use of social media to promote its products and create awareness among the consumers.
“It is really appreciable that OPOLFED has offered to sale its product online. Although initially it will sale its products within the municipal corporation area of Bhubaneswar, it can extend the facility to other areas after looking at the response” he said.
“I am happy that Opolfed has also launched a Facebook page to promote its products and create awareness among the consumers. Today its Facebook page has more than 6600 likes and I hope more and more people will visit this page in the coming days and will connect with Opolfed”.
