Govt expects up to 15 cr people to join ‘myGov’ platform
“The country is changing. Digital democracy is the essence of India and Digital India is the destiny of India. MyGov is the biggest platform of Digital India,” Prasad said at the inaugural session of myGov’s two-year anniversary celebration. He added that at present, 35 lakh people are connected to the myGov platform and that the site has logged constructive suggestions on a variety of subjects, including smart cities, Union Budget, net neutrality, new education policy amongst others.
“Where there are 103 crore mobiles, I expect 10-15 crore people should be connected to myGov. Suggestions on how to improve the future (of the country) should come from the citizens... Our government is attempting to connect with people in a new way (using technology),” the Minister said.
Prasad said myGov platform should also include path- breaking achievements of the common man in the times ahead. “I would like MyGov to become a platform to showcase achievements of those common people who don’t get space on TV etc... You can change India by using technology, that is the essence of myGov,” he said.
