New Delhi: As it gears up for the general election, BJP is set to make use of E-networking to tone up the party for maximum benefits.
The party will soon launch a network linking more than 1,000 party offices across the country which will include facilities like computer-based faxing and instant messaging. More than 30 lakh partymen are to be given official e-mail addresses and each cadre would be able to approach party president Rajnath Singh via video-conferencing.
The party has established an IT cell headed by an IIM graduate which is racing against time to install a state-of-the-art technology platform for the party ahead of the election year.
The initiative is planned to be unveiled during the party’s National Executive and Council later this month.
“Any organization may it be a political party, must keep pace with the latest advancements to make the maximum utilisation of resources available,” spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy told PTI.
“Though technology can never substitute human endeavours it can always supplement it and organise it for maximum results,” he added.
The party’s plan is also to substantially cut down on telephone bills and switch on to the day-to-day communication on a dedicated bandwidth purchased by the saffron brigade.
“The whole project is cost effective as we have employed the free linux based software,” Prodyut Bora, head of the IT cell said.
