Modi's official portal narendramodi.in serves as a one-point stop for anything and everything about him. Managed by a group of volunteers who are scattered across the globe, the portal provides its users facilities to write him a message, request a meeting, and even send an invite to Modi. If it's running live videos of all his events, the users can also pen an article as citizen journalist. The portal also has links to Facebook, Twitter, Google, Flicker, and even official Andriod and iPhone and iPad applications. While the role of Gujarat Information Department here is limited in giving releases on latest government events, the whole of technical and content part is managed by a dedicated group of some 3,000 volunteers.
Social media managers compare CM to Obama
In many ways, Modi's social media managers like to compare his style with US President Barack Obama's. And Modi follows Obama on Twitter.
The 300-odd people that Modi follows include former President A P J Abdul Kalam, A R Rehman, Ajay Devgn and UK Foreign Minister Hugo Swire, to name a few.
Some of the schemes floated by the state government were actually suggested to him by people through his official portal narendramodi.in, or on his Facebook page or Twitter handle. "Schemes like CM Fellowship or Annual Ahmedabad Cyclothon or making an e-version of all the books penned by Modi or on him were the ideas that the CM was given through his portal,'' said an official.
