8 Nov : National Democratic Alliance’s (NDA) Prime Ministerial candidate L K Advani on Saturday went online to greet the netizens saying ‘the nation is poised for a change’.
The web portal, www.lkadvani.com, launched on Saturday by former Jammu and Kashmir Governor S K Sinha, greets the visitors with a call to “make the 21st century, India’s century”.
The portal with features like interactive forums, videos, photo albums, campaign trails and many other facilities is claimed to be the biggest political website of the country by the saffron party.
“I am sure that this initiative would bring good results as it has brought good results for US President-elect Barack Obama,” Sinha told reporters after the launch in New Delhi at the party headquarters.
Speaking on the occasion, party Chief Rajnath Singh said that the initiative was a clear sign of the forward looking instincts of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
“Initiative like this clearly makes our party a forward looking and innovative party and Advaniji is rightly called the pioneer of novelties in BJP. He has the ability to adopt to newer systems,” Singh said.
Hailing the team lead by party’s IT cell chief Pradyut Bora for the web portal, Advani said, “I feel that after the invention of wheel and electricity, Internet is the greatest gift to the humanity.”
“An estimate suggests 10 crore first time voters would be added in these General Elections, I am sure that we would be able to reach to that mass through the web,” he added.
