Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with IT professionals at the town hall in Delhi on the occasion of the launch of “Main Nahin Hum” portal and app on Wednesday. The event will commence at 4 pm. The portal, which works on the theme “Self For Society”, will enable IT professionals and organisations to bring together their efforts towards social causes and service to society on a single platform.
The Prime Minister will meet with key industry leaders and address a gathering consisting of IT professionals, and employees of IT and electronic manufacturing organizations. He will interact with the gathering in a town hall-style format.
The Prime Minister will hold the discussion on ways through which the vibrant IT and electronic manufacturing sector can undertake initiatives and volunteer to contribute to building a "New India". The portal is expected to help catalyse greater collaboration towards the service of the weaker sections of society, especially by leveraging the benefits of technology. It is also expected to generate wider participation of interested people who are motivated to work for the benefit of society.
IT and electronic manufacturing professionals from about 100 locations across India are expected to join the event via video-conference.
Earlier in October, IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad held an extensive consultation with IT honchos and had sought the industry’s active involvement in social initiatives, ahead of the event.
“On October 24, the PM will hold a town hall event in Delhi, where there will be thousands of IT professionals…he will also speak to CEOs and IT professionals in over a dozen locations to enthuse and inspire them to make India’s digital story, one of social inclusion,” Ravi Shankar Prasad had said.
