On Thursday 21st March 2013 Shri Narendra Modi will speak on ‘Technology in Politics’ at the Google Big Tent Activate Summit 2013. Shri Narendra Modi’s speech will commence at 2:15 PM. Shri Modi will address the Summit through a Google+ Hangout.

Before delivering the address Shri Modi will interact with Mr. Eric Schmidt, the Chairman of Google Inc. via Google+ Hangout.

In addition to Mr. Schmidt, those who will be participating in the Summit are Mr. Alan Rusbridger, the Editor-in-Chief of British newspaper the Guardian and Ms. Stephanie Cutter, who served as the Deputy Director of President Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns. Leading political leaders, bureaucrats, policymakers, journalists and distinguished guests from various walks of life would be watching Shri Modi speak at the summit. Shri Modi is the only Chief Minister to be invited to speak at the summit.

Big Tent Summits are hosted by Google and they bring together the finest minds, political leaders, thinkers to talk about a variety of issues. Such Big Tent Summits have been held across the world including in New York City, London, Berlin, Madrid, Nairobi, Moscow, Seoul to name a few. This Summit will focus on the influence of the web in shaping India’s future, in the areas of business and economics, politics and governance, culture and media, and education.

When it comes to the incorporation of technology in the day to day functioning of the Government, Shri Narendra Modi is a trendsetter in India today. He firmly believes that technology is nothing but easy, effective and economical governance, which inspired him to infuse the working of the state administration with latest technology.

Shri Modi is also a leader who has been at the forefront of using technology in terms of engaging with people across the world. Shri Modi is very active on all leading mediums of social media. On Twitter he has over 13 lakh followers and he also active on Facebook. On both these mediums, Shri Modi shares thoughts, views and updates on development initiatives of Gujarat Government. Shri Modi’s You Tube Channel is home to a wide range of speeches given by the Chief Minister. He is also very active on Google+.

On August 31st 2012 Shri Modi scripted history when he interacted with people via Google Hangout. The Hangout has been one of the most successful Hangouts, viewed by 40,00,000 people either on TV, Internet or on social media. The number of nations where the Hangout was viewed was 121! Shri Modi answered a variety of questions on policy as well as several personal anecdotes.

Shri Modi wrote history yet again when he used 3D projection technology to interact with people across the length and breath of Gujarat during the 2012 Gujarat Vidhan Sabha Elections. During the speeches the Chief Minister spoke about the development of Gujarat and took on the votebank politics of the Congress Party. Shri Modi’s 3D interaction also entered the Guinness World Records for the most simultaneous shows of the Pepper’s Ghost Illusion.

Come Thursday, Shri Modi will yet again rewrite the rules of the game and talk about how latest technology has brought a qualitative difference in the lives of the people at large.
