Inspired by America’s president-elect Barrack Obama’s hugely successful web campaign, the BJP is ready with a new website on its prime ministerial candidate LK Advani.
The website, www. lkadvani.in, will be a gift to the leader on his 81st birthday on Saturday — but without, of course, any appeal for donation. Advani's aides said: “This is India. No body is going use credit cards to make donation.”
“We want to reach out to the young people. Users can register online to receive email and SMS alerts of Advani's events,” a BJP leader said. Similarly, volunteers who want to work on the campaign could submit their applications through the portal.
BJP’s web designers said the site would be India’s largest political website with 700 pages, 300 pictures and 150 videos that chronicle Advani’s life story.
