Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched a website MyGov that aims to help citizens contribute in governance by giving their opinions and views on important issues like clean Ganga or skill development.

The inauguration of the people-centric platform also marks the completion of 60 days of the new government. The Prime Minister said in the past 60 days, the experience of his government was that there were many people who wanted to contribute towards nation-building and devote their time and energy, an official statement said.

Modi said MyGov (mygov.nic.in) is a technology-driven medium that will provide citizens an opportunity to contribute towards good governance, the statement added.

“The platform would bridge gap gulf between people and government. Democracy cannot succeed without people’s participation in government and this participation should not be limited only during elections,” the Prime Minister said. Besides Modi, Communications and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, Cabinet Secretary Ajit Seth, DEITY Secretary R S Sharma were also present at the launch of the portal.

National Informatics Centre (NIC) of the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) will implement and manage the platform. There are multiple theme-based discussions on MyGov where a wide range of people can share their thoughts and ideas with the government, Sharma told reporters after the launch.

“It is also an initiative to build a digital knowledge library. We will guide the people on the topics of national importance on which the government would like to know their views and ideas,” he added.

The platform presents an opportunity for the citizens to both ‘Discuss’ and ‘Do’, Sharma said, adding, any idea shared by a contributor will also be discussed on the discussion forums, allowing constructive feedback and interaction. At present, there are six groups on the platform — Clean Ganga, Girl Child Education, Clean India, Skilled India, Digital India and Job Creation.

Village serving employees should be paid their wages through bank by check so that they will be ured of receiving the minimum wages. Thus their Purchasing Power will increase and poverty level will come down.Government will also be able to take the stock of this progress while spending on ROJGAR HAMI YOJNA in order to eliminate this minimum days guaranteed subside scheme in course of time . It will also enable government whether Land Owner or Industrialist pay these labours minimum wages or not This should strictly be enforced by Labour & Finance Ministry

    1955sudhakar (DOMBIVLI[EAST] .)Bronze: 80Antited sweep of the new broom in Agricultural policy ==========================================================Agriculture should be made compulsory for every Citizen in our Country .Agriculture has been slight'ned in our Country since 15th August , 1947 , the day of our Independence terming it muddy work , soiled work and dirty work . Paper on Desk Jobs with Pens preferred to Agricultural Functions . Indians welcomed Night Cricket but not Agricultural Nights ! The Agricultural Creativity has not been allowed to come to the forefront . Rather , reduced to ash-value in life due to non-agricultural educational revolutions saying in aid of Agriculture led by the non-agricultural educationists a course of " 365 1" days / year , minimum 100 days will have to be made legally devoted to Agriculture by every Citizen which otherwise be declared unparliamentary .Because Agriculture commands permanent ethereal value and the post -World War II deluge of technology gave rise to industrial wave which has now ended , Agriculture could be incorporated in Indian Citizens' Fundamental Rights as early as possible through a Joint Session of Lok Sabha & Raj Sabha to be specially convened on 15-8-2014 . for the historical purpose .Also , if so not possible as above , a non-agricultural tax of 21% of 'otherwise' earned income will have to be imposed and collected from such Citizens claiming non-agricultural income and who disown Agriculture for naturally disabled causes .sd/- Dr.Rojukurthi Sudhakar Rao , 11-8-2014.

Hon'ble Modi has accepted Hon'ble Obama's request to visit America. Their meeting to takeplace this month .I wish PM Modi to visit the State of Alabama in America without fail because this is the place from where the world famous Anti-Trust Act, known as Clayton's Anti-trust Act of 1914 was enacted laying public foundations to democratic rights of working potions all over globe . India born in 1947 is obviously younger in Democracy to the sisterly American Democracy . India was not sovereign in 1914 while under the British controls when the Anti-trust Act was made by the Alabama Democrat , Clayton , in America .The American Clayton's Anti-trust Act laid down that labour of a human being is not an article of commerce or a commodity to be treated as such while permitting labour Organizations/ Unions to carry out their objectives and collective bargainings and deals using boycotts , strikes , picketings , black-flags marches , pen-down actions and protests to protect trade, industry & commercial activity from monopoly and unlawful restraints for merger of industries and combination of businesses to perfect the free compeion among Companies today's banking world , the Clayton's Anti-Trust Act stands as a bedrock and withstood the test of time in all countries in the World from privatization , localization , nationalization and globalization of banking business processes as well as the industry per se . More about the American Clayton making him a cherishable personality was that he made the Anti-Trust Act as an Alabama Democrat in America named after him .I also wish in advance that the Alabama Business Congress ( ABC ) may be addressed by our Hon'ble PM Modi in Alabama . sd/- Dr.Rojukurthi Sudhakar Rao , DOMBIVLI[EAST], HI NAGAR , 13-9-2014

    Mr Modi has lot on his hands and the time he has got very limited. My concern is that Indian travelling from one state to different state get murdered because of language problem. Modi should start this compaign all over India in different forms to educate and make the people aware that we are all Indian and host residents has the duty to help and understand the visitors problems instead haring them. We all speak language which may be different to the host state and people of the host states need to be educated to welcome the visitors. In Europe visitors are treated with care and respect and are helped if required. Why should North Eastern, amese, Manipur or from any other states be hared. It is shame on India.
