To develop a smooth bridge of communication between a voter and a member of parliament (MP), a website under the domain amarmp.com has been launched on Tuesday. State Minister for Information and Communication Technology Junaid Ahmed Palak inaugurated this digital platform at ICT Tower in Agargaon.
Through this website, a voter can ask a question to his MP. More than 150 MPs have already been connected with this platform.
It is a pioneering, non-profit making and non-partisan initiative created by a group of Bangladeshi online activists and spearheaded by Engr. Sushanta Das Gupta.
Members of Parliament (MP) in Bangladesh have been slow to embrace the benefits of using social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and other methods to communicate with their constituents.
amarMP.com is bridging the gap between parliamentary representatives and the citizens of Bangladesh by creating a platform for them to connect, according to AmarMP website`s description.
