“As we devote ourselves to take India’s development journey to newer heights, we seek your support, blessings and active participation,” Modi said in his first message on the website on Monday.
He added, “Together we will script a glorious future for India. Let us together dream of a strong, developed and inclusive India that actively engages with the global community to strengthen the cause of world peace and development.”
A short profile was also uploaded on www.pmindia.nic.in which described him as “dynamic, dedicated and determined” leader who “arrives as a ray of hope in the lives of a billion Indians”.
It said that his “laser focus on development and his proven ability” to deliver results have made him one of India’s most popular leaders.
An option called “Wish the Prime Minister” takes a user to Modi’s personal website.
Modi, on the relaunched website, said, “They delivered a mandate for development, good governance and stability… Together we will script a glorious future for India. Let us together dream of a strong, developed and inclusive India that actively engages with the global community to strengthen the cause of world peace and development.”
Underlining that the website was a very important medium of direct communication between himself and people, he said, “I am a firm believer in the power of technology and social media to communicate with people across the world.”
Modi hoped that the platform would create opportunities to listen, learn and share one’s views.
“Through this website you will also get all the latest information about my speeches, schedules, foreign visits and lot more. I will also keep informing you about innovative initiatives undertaken by the Government of India,” he said.
The website also has a section on his personal life covering various phases — from childhood to being an RSS volunteer and becoming a BJP leader.
