Maharashtra's Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) now wants to go the e-way. The party plans to link four of its divisional offices across Maharashtra to its state headquarters in Mumbai through video-conferencing.

So office-bearers of the BJP’s Maharashtra chapter will soon be able to monitor activities in the party’s Aurangabad, Amravati, Nashik and Nagpur offices sitting here in Mumbai.

“We want to make the maximum use of information technology,” Nitin Gadkari, state BJP president, told journalists at the inauguration of the party’s media centre for the civic polls.

“We will try and ensure that all our correspondence also happens through email,” he added.

Gadkari also revealed that the party is in the process of devising a system that will allow the top leaders to convey decisions and plans to party-workers using Short Messaging Service (SMS).

The party is also launching a website for the forthcoming civic elections that will have details regarding voting patterns, conditions before and after delimitation of constituencies and the party’s manifesto and programmes. “We want to reach out to the people in a big way,” Gadkari said.
