Prime Minister Narendra Modi was off the blocks in a flash on Monday, putting out a message for “My dear fellow Indians and citizens of the world” on the web.
The PM’s website, which carried the message that it was under transformation from around 5pm onwards, went live minutes after Modi was sworn in.
Beginning with the traditional greeting, Namaste, Modi welcomed visitors to the official website of the Prime Minister of India.
“On 16th May 2014 the people of India gave their verdict. They delivered a mandate for development, good governance and stability. As we devote ourselves to take India’s development journey to newer heights, we seek your support, blessings and active participation.
“Together we will script a glorious future for India. Let us together dream of a strong, developed and inclusive India that actively engages with the global community to strengthen the cause of world peace and development,” he said.
India’s tech-savvy PM also shared his vision that this website would be interactive.
“I envision this website as a very important medium of direct communication between us. I am a firm believer in the power of technology and social media to communicate with people across the world. I hope this platform creates opportunities to listen, learn and share one’s views.”
He added, “Through this website you will also get all the latest information about my speeches, schedules, foreign visits and lot more. I will also keep informing you about innovative initiatives undertaken by the Government of India.”
