The Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday launched an initiative to enable those of its leaders handling the media and participating in TV panel discussions to interact daily among each other as well as discuss issues and decide party strategy.
The 'mobile conference calling' service was launched by BJP national spokesperson Prakash Jawdekar in Delhi on Tuesday. "He interacted with media heads from various states", Chandigarh BJP party media convenor Ravinder Pathania said.
"The BJP is the only party in the country that has taken this kind of initiative, using the latest technology to connect with its workers and people," he claimed, adding that by using this service the BJP's national leaders would be able to directly guide its workers and discuss major issues related to the party.
The BJP's Chandigarh state human rights cell called on the family members of two girls of Sector 45 reported missing since February. In a statement the party said the girls' parents told them they were not satisfied with the pace of investigations by the local police.
Later in the day, the BJP's human rights cell members met Chandigarh inspector general of police RK Upadhyay and expressed their anguish over the slow progress of the investigations. "After our intervention the police has announced a special investigative team (SIT) has been set up to solve the case," the BJP claimed.
