Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal today launched a website– MyGov Assam, an interactive platform between the government and people of the state that would help the government in knowing public opinion on different subjects.
Launching the website, the chief minister said that MyGov would facilitate dialogue, discussion, deliberation and information dissemination between citizens and government and would also be a great tool for the people to give suggestion to the government on policy formulation and implementation.
Saying that the people are as much the stakeholders in the governance as the elective representatives, Mr Sonowal said they must engage themselves in government’s functioning taking advantage of the technology like MyGov Assam. ” People have always been eager to provide their suggestions and feedback but due to lack of an interactive medium it was not possible for them to do so. But now MyGov would provide the opportunity to the people to get closer to the government and bridge the gap in communication.”
Mr Sonowal said. Urging all departments and institutions under the state government to take up MyGov Assam on priority basis and adopt a participatory approach in their decision making, Mr Sonowal said this platform would be a vital link between the government and public in achieving the goal of making Assam one of the best states in the country.
