After releasing the IT Vision Document, the Bharatiya Janata Party has decided to depute an IT expert each in all Lok Sabha constituencies across the country to help party candidates make best use of IT-enabled services for electioneering purposes.
"The party will depute an IT expert each in all the Lok Sabha constituencies of the country to help candidates in establishing contact with the electorates through SMS, mobile phones and e-correspondence," BJP national IT Cell Convenor Pradyut Bora told PTI in Bhopal on Monday.
We are in the process of appointing an IT expert each in all the Lok Sabha constituencies across the country to the extent possible, he said.
As far as Madhya Pradesh is concerned the state BJP's IT cell head Yogendra Shrivastava has put up a capable team in all the constituencies of the state and an IT-expert will be there to assist the party candidate in disseminating information through IT among his electorates, Bora said.
He arrived in Bhopal on Sunday evening to take part in a function to dedicate the state party unit's newly developed IT facilites.
The new hi-tech facilities like CCTV, IP-telephony system and Wi-Fi were dedicated by the party candidate from Vidisha seat Sushma Swaraj and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Sunday evening.
Later, explaining the rationale behind releasing the party's IT Vision Document, Bora said that once the party came to power at the centre IT would be used in a such a manner that the entire system would become free from corruption.
He said that the BJP's state office is the second office of the party after its national headquarter which is completely automated.
The state BJP media in-charge Govind Maloo said that with the installation of IP-Telephony, the state party office is connected with the Central office through hotline which greatly reduces the party's telephone expenses.
He also said that all the computers of the state party office are connected with the Wi-Fi technique.
