New Delhi, March 14 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Saturday unveiled its IT Vision Document, which lays down how the party plans to use Information Technology (IT) as an important tool for change if voted to power.
The party’s prime ministerial candidate L.K. Advani, while unveiling the party document ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, said if the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is voted to power then it would use IT as an important tool to bring about drastic change in major fields, including education and health.
“If the country gives us a chance in 2009, we will ensure that IT would be used as an important tool to change our educational, economic, health and social sectors,” Advani told reporters. He also launched the re-designed BJP website along with party president Rajnath Singh at the party headquarters here.
The party’s high profile general secretary Arun Jaitley was present at the important function, though he arrived a late. He was present along with senior BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj, Jaswant Singh and Arun Shourie.
A day earlier, Jaitley, who is reported to be at loggerheads with Rajnath Singh over the appointment of Sudhanshu Mittal as in-charge of the poll campaign in Assam and joint in-charge of the entire northeast, had skipped the party’s important central election committee meeting.
Speaking at the function Saturday, Shourie called for the re-orientation of the IT industries by giving more focus to the domestic market.
