NEW DELHI – The website of India’s Prime Minister's Office put up Narendra Modi’s first official message as prime minister with greeting the people of the nation.
“On May 16, 2014, the people of India gave their verdict. They delivered a mandate for development, good governance and stability. As we devote ourselves to take India's development journey to newer heights, we seek your support, blessings and active participation,” Modi said.
"Together we will script a glorious future for India. Let us together dream of a strong, developed and inclusive India that actively engages with the global community to strengthen the cause of world peace and development," he said. Modi has all through his campaign been very proactively interacting via the social media, even tweeting just a few hours before his swearing-in ceremony.
In his very first message on the official website of the prime minister, Modi said, "I envision this website as a very important medium of direct communication between us. I am a firm believer in the power of technology and social media to communicate with people across the world. I hope this platform creates opportunities to listen, learn and share one's views."
Modi also added the website would be constantly updated with latest information about his speeches, schedules, foreign visits and lot more. “I will also keep informing you about innovative initiatives undertaken by the Government of India." Modi, India's 15th prime minister, took oath on Monday at a ceremony held at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
