Over 60 professionals working in various IT majors like Microsoft, Cisco, Apple, eBay and Oracle joined hands at the first NaMo tea stall set up in Silicon Valley US, as part of extending their support to BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for the Lok Sabha polls. The Indian-American professionals met at an Indian tea-stall in Ortega Park in Sunnyvale as part of the volunteer group “I Care for India”, a press statement said here on Tuesday.

“The meet-up was set up at a traditional village-side tea-stall where people attended discussion on the role of technology in solving governance issues in India”, it said. Participants, who came from an engineering background, proposed suggestions such as making use of latest technology to cut power transmission losses in India, fully computerising the process of government tenders and providing technological aid to Indian farmers. The organisers plan to compile all the suggestions discussed and send them to a team formed by BJP in India, the statement added.
