To reach out to more people across India, the official website of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s office will now be available in six regional languages including Bengali, Marathi, Malayalam, Gujrati, Tamil and Telugu. The multilingual website was launched by external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj.
Till now the PMO website www.pmindia.gov in was available only in English and Hindi. The website showcases various initiatives of the government. “I thank all those who have worked tirelessly in the creation of the new versions of @PMOIndia site in various languages. Thanks to @SushmaSwaraj ji for launching @PMOIndia site in 6 languages.” “These sites will further strengthen my interaction withyou all,” Modi tweeted.
Swaraj said these websites of the PMO in regional languages are a “great opportunity” to further expand
discussion on government’s agenda of development and good governance. “The initiative is part of Prime Minister’s efforts to reach out to people and communicate with them in their own languages,” she said.
In another tweet, Modi said, “If you find any parts of these language websites that need to be corrected, you must let us know. Your feedback is always welcome.”
Swaraj hoped the initiative would further enhance the interaction between people from all parts of the country and the PM on various issues concerning their welfare and development. “NDA government is a firm believer in connecting with people across India in their preferred language. These site versions are part of that effort,” she added.
