The Indian diaspora can help India's foreign policy: Modi
Everyone is connected to each other. The Indian diaspora has a power and a respect. The diaspora has become more proactive and assertive now. It can play a role in connecting India to the rest of the world, says Modi.
Union Communications and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Saturday inaugurated townhall to mark the two year anniversary of MyGov.in (the government’s citizen-engagement platform). It is being held at the Indira Gandhi Stadium Complex in New Delhi.
"The Prime Minister will talk about the concept of citizen engagement, MyGov, the response to this participative governance initiative and how he sees the platform evolving," MyGov Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Gaurav Dwivedi said. He said a process is already on to short-list those who will get to interact with Modi. "They would be selected from among the regular users of MyGov, based on their ideas, level of engagement, questions and suggestions," he added.
Modi calls himself Pradhan Sevak and that reflects the people centric change in governance, Prasad said during his inaugral address. "Those who think for the country and work for its development have been given a platform to participate. It's our effort to connect with people directly in governance of India. In last two years we have added 12 Cr mobile phones in India," he added.
Our PM believes that we need to be both digitally and physically present, Prasad said.
