Digital literacy is important to bridge communication gap between the Govt & common man: BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi

27 August, 2014

From launching a social networking site, to asking each minister to be available on micro-blogging site Twitter, PM Narendra Modi has been very active in order to ensure that the communication gap between the government and common man is bridged with the help of social media. His cabinet has also cleared an Rs 1 lakh crore ‘Digital India’ project to ensure that even the villages of the country are benefited by the digital initiatives of the government.

In an exclusive chat with VCC TV, national spokesperson of Bhartiya Janta Party and Member of Parliament from the New Delhi constituency, Meenakshi Lekhi talks about all the government’s initiatives on social media platforms, as well as their ground level status. She also discusses the importance of digital literacy and how she plans to run a campaign to teach the use of WhatsApp and Facebook to the tech-challenged women and elderly in her constituency.

Lekhi also touched upon the issues of FDI in e-commerce, rise in entrepreneurship in the country and how she in her individual capacity would like to incubate startups. On a lighter note, the MP also shared her experiences with e-commerce portals and how these companies should be more aggressive in their awareness programs for customers.
