Speaking at the launch of a social networking website, 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."
    
He added that only 10-12 percent of people have Internet access in India and 70 percent of the people have mobile access.
    
Social media will play an active role once there is a convergence of mobile and Internet, Tharoor said.
