If you thought it was impossible for chief minister Narendra Modi to keep an eye on all public and party-related issues in the state, you are wrong. With the help of a special software and the conveners of IT cell appointed in each constituency, Modi is able to do just that in all the 182 assembly seats.

If you thought it was impossible for chief minister Narendra Modi to keep an eye on all public and party-related issues in the state, you are wrong. With the help of a special software and the conveners of IT cell appointed in each constituency, Modi is able to do just that in all the 182 assembly seats.

The conveners, called Vidhansabha Information Karyakartas (VIKs) within the BJP, have to bring all the problems of the party and people in their areas to the notice of the chief minister. Modi’s IT team has developed a special software called Karyakarta Empowerment Programme (Kemp) through which he can keep himself up-to-date on major problems in each constituency.

The VIKs have to enter the feedback received from party workers or members of the public, in subject-wise columns marked out in Kemp. This ensures that the feedback goes directly to Modi’s IT team which scrutinises the data and keeps the chief minister informed. The VIKs have been asked to work without bias and not to bother about party hierarchy in the feedback.

The chief minister had constituted the I-T team himself and had held a four-hour meeting with it over two months back to brief it about the programme. Kemp will function till the date of voting. All members of the team have been given laptops and internet data cards so that they can access the software which is also directly linked to the social networking sites, Facebook and Twitter.
