All you have to do is post a question, either a video or a text question here! The last date for submitting questions is 27th August midnight.
For those who have always wanted to have a word with Shri Narendra Modi in person, this is the time for them! Speak with Shri Narendra Modi on “Strong & Glorious India long cherished by Swami Vivekananda!” Be the youth of Swami Vivekananda’s dreams! The questions posted here will be shortlisted and the selected questioners will be invited to join Shri Narendra Modi on Google+ hangout. The Hangout will be broadcasted LIVE on youtube!

Being abreast with modern technology is icing on a cake and Shri Narendra Modi has had an influential web presence since he came to power. Connecting with people on social media has been nothing new for Shri Modi. The tech-savvy CM already has a huge fan following on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, with more than 8 lakh followers on twitter and more than 6 lakh fans on facebook! His Google + account which was created only 2 months back, already has a huge followers base of more than 90,000! Shri Narendra Modi has always believed in open exchange of views with people on a regular basis be it through any medium.
In India, when people talk about taking technology to the doorstep of common man, nobody misses out on making a mention of Shri Narendra Modi, as he is known for having a penchant for modern day technology and providing the same to the people residing in remote areas. He is committed to offering transparency in whatever work the state government takes on hand.
In a bid to achieve mass participation, the Chief Minister in the past has made optimum use of technology that has helped improvise governance and also speeded grievance redressal procedure. An example of this is Gujarat government’s SWAGAT e-governance system, a UN award winning initiative of Gujarat! The government through e-governance has resolved thousands of long-pending complaints!
So, make the most of this chance to speak with Shri Narendra Modi, the leader who has envisioned and implemented change for good and post your question now!
