The launch of a separate website today for Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi could well be a part of the Congress strategy to reach out to the people using the digital highway.
"The website will definitely help the Congress in taking governance closer to the people. As you know, the Congress government in the last 10 years has always stressed on Raijor Padulit Raijor Sarkar (People's Government at People's Doorsteps). This is a guiding philosophy of our party," Gaurav Gogoi, Congress leader and son of the chief minister told Firstpost from Guwahati.
"This website is a digitalisation of the process of connecting the people with the government. I believe this website will help us introduce more meaningful changes in Assam that we are doing for people both at rural and urban level. It is a digital connect," he said.
On being asked if the website will help the chief minister to tackle the detractors within and outside the Congress party, Gaurav said, "I would not like to comment on that. It is for other people to decide on how they accept it."
Answering a question on the lack of helpline in the portal, he said, "With time, more features will be added to the website. The website should have an interactive facility in the coming days."
Talking about his involvement in the project, Gaurav said, "The talk about a website was on for a long time. The website is managed by the Assam government. Being a youth, I did give some feedback on design and colour."
Whether tarungogoi.in would succeed in bringing the people of Assam closer to the state government is a story for the future.
