‘MyGov platform for those who think for country’

 Union IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad launched an interactive programme with citizens marking two years of the MyGov platform on Saturday.

 
He also said that the site is for those who think about the country's development.
 
The MyGov initiative was launched couple of years ago to help citizens directly interact with the government by giving suggestion about better governance.
 
Those who think for the country and work for its development have been given a platform to participate," Prasad said, addressing the inaugural session of "The Spirit 
 
of Participatory Democracy with MyGov".
 
"I would like MyGovIndia to become a platform to showcase achievements of those common people who don't get space on TV," he said.
 
PM Modi launched MyGov in July 2014 to give opportunity to the people to participate in multiple theme-based discussions and share their thoughts.
 
The platform has several groups like Clean Ganga, Girl Child Education, Digital India, Food Security and Healthy India.
 
MyGov has 3.52 million registered members, 182,000 submissions in 491 tasks and 3.40 million comments in 590 discussion themes.
