'Talk to AK': Arvind Kejriwal to reach out to public through social media on 17 July

New Delhi: In a bid to reach out to people across the country, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will hold an interactive session with people on 17 July through social media, phone calls and text messages.

The Delhi Chief Minister's programme titled Talk to AK apparently seems to have taken a leaf out of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's monthly radio programme Mann ki Baat.

The move comes at a time when the Aam Aadmi Party, headed by Kejriwal, is gearing up for Assembly elections in Goa, Punjab, Gujarat and other states.

A senior government official said on Kejriwal will hold an hour-long live interactive session with people on 17 July at 11 am and take their questions through Twitter, Facebook, phone calls and text messages.

The government has launched a dedicated website — 'talktoak.com' — through which people can directly ask the questions, the official said, adding dedicated phone numbers for the programme will also be issued in next couple of days.

"For a long time, the media team of the CM was working on the project. CM may hold interactive session every month to reach out to more people in the country," he added.

The CM is expected to start the interaction by speaking about the AAP government's performance over the past year and a half and thereafter he will take questions from people.
